The Boat Club is an essential part of all colleges in Durham and St John’s is no different. The SJCBC is a not only a place for sport and competition, but a great way to meet new friends and maybe learn a new sport whilst you’re at it. Even if you’ve already rowed before joining the SJCBC allows for you to row more casually than at schools – if that’s what you want. SJCBC is the only sport in John’s which is not FREE. This is because SJCBC is not affiliated/linked with the SJCR and instead gets funding directly from college.
