The Club – through its Alumni and Supporters raises very substantial amounts annually to buy and turnover our rowing boats, oars, ergometers, coaching boats.


Those of you who have participated in our sport know that the costs of running a large rowing program are quite substantial.


Over the past thirty years Sydney University Boat Club has risen in performance to become one of the leading rowing clubs in Australia and is now a designated Pathway Club by Rowing Australia. In March 2023 SUBC won the Club Pointscore and the Medal Table at the National Rowing Championships in Perth.


Over the period 2015-17 our alumni and supporters contributed $1.6 million dollars towards the construction of the new Thyne Reid Boatshed in Burns Bay, Lane Cove. This training centre replaced the one destroyed by arson on the same site in 2006. This was a major effort on top of the regular ongoing funding required for equipment and the Boat Club appreciates the support it received from its loyal supporters.


With the growth of our squads it has become important that we re-launch our Donor Program for Equipment to enable us to boat all our rowing squads.

This year 2023, we would appreciate if you, as a supporter could look at supporting our club over the future years.


We seek support through regular quarterly giving, annual giving and through major bequests.


Our equipment turnover and purchase plan is available by request to be sent to and explained to donors.
