NUBC Supporters Association

Welcome to the NUBCSA Webpage.

The Newcastle University Boat Club Supporters Association (snappily abbreviated to NUBCSA) aims to be a lively and inclusive organisation formed to support the athletes of the boat club as well bring together it’s supporters.

In brief we aim to:-

    • Support rowing events across the year
    • Bring together the supporters of NUBC

There are a large number of rowing events each year and these involve a huge amount of coordination by the coaches and the committee. The Supporter’s Association aims to help wherever it is needed and, in addition, to provide a place for parents and rowers to congregate and cheer on the Blue Star rowers. 

As each event draws nearer a more detailed document will be sent out to all members (and posted here). This would include top tips like where to spectate from, the best places to park and also a list of all the boat numbers and start times of every NUBC crew on the water that day.
