Description:
<!-- Deleted image removed: -->

Glasgow University Boat Club is one of the oldest institutions at the University of Glasgow, with a rich tradition stretching back to its foundation in 1877. Although traditionally all-male, in 2004 the club underwent an historic transformation with the acceptance of female students into the club. The annual is the 2nd oldest such event in the UK, with only the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race having a longer tradition. The event grows in popularity each year and it has become a major highlight of the Scottish rowing calendar. The 2011 Race will take place on 7 May at Glasgow Green.

The Boat Club has long been considered one of the most successful clubs at the University. GUBC has produced crews that have and continue to compete successfully at both Scottish and national level. Club members have frequently been chosen to represent Scotland and at both the Home International Regatta, and recently the inaugural European University Championships.

Until 2005, the club was the last independently funded sports club at the University, before being subsumed into the Glasgow University Sports Association, formerly the GU Athletic Club.
