Alexandra Boat Club is the Graduate Boat Club at the University of Edinburgh. It was originally founded in 1864, making it three years older than the students’ boat club.
Alexandra was reformed in 1999, and has gone on to act as a strong link for all graduates of Edinburgh University Boat Club. Alexandra members are able to stay in touch, enter races and support EUBC through the club.
EUBC Graduates and Alexandra members Mark Hughes and Jonathan Cowie are set to row the navigable length of the River Danube, from Ulm in Germany to the Black Sea – and beyond, to Istanbul!
Jonathan and Mark were part of H2Row’s team that was aiming to row around the UK in record time – however, a very different challenge awaits in June 2013.
Mark and Jonathan will be raising money for two small British charities through the row: Cardiac Risk in the Young, and Friends of Navajeevana. More information on the charities is available on the website.
Alexandra Committee Elections are due this year. The elections will be held during Henley Royal Regatta, 3-7 July 2013. Please contact
