“I could not have chosen a better club at the University of Glasgow to join for my year abroad. GUBC fosters a welcoming environment to learn the basics of rowing, while being both mentally and physical challenging. My teammates and coaches are truly the gems of the campus; all with a serious drive to succeed in the sport, and to have fun along the way. Grinding out every GUBC circuit session was a phenomenal tactic for avoiding the ol’ fresher’s beer belly… and giving the boys the help that they needed to rock their kilts at the annual GUBC banquet and ceilidh. Which brings us to the socials… a perfect way to let loose after a dreadful week at uni, but be warned: one pieces and the infamous punch are a bad mix. If you’re looking for a rewarding experience and a quirky group of friends, GUBC is the club for you.”
