Sydney University Boat Club

 

Sydney University Boat Club is among the oldest sporting clubs in Australia, founded in 1860. Known throughout the world as The Home of Rowing, the club has produced great rowing careers at University, State, National and International level.
 At the 2008 Olympics six Sydney University rowers represented Australia - two in the men's eight, two in the women's eight and two in the men's four with Francis Hegerty and Matt Ryan winning silver medals in the M4-. Ten Sydney University rowers competed for Australia at the London Olympics.
