Once you have rowed (or coxed!) for Brasenose you are part of a community for life. The nature of Oxford bumps racing means that our current crew’s position is tangibly linked to every other Brasenose crew that has come before us.
We welcome any Alumni that want to come down to the boathouse to watch a regatta, especially the Saturday of Eights. Just turn up and you will be made more than welcome – you can even compete in the annual 100m ergo race!
The Bowman Fund
In 2015, BNCBC’s 200th anniversary, The Bowman Fund was set up by a group of volunteer alumni with the goal of radically improving the finances and support network for BNCBC.
It is building a long-term endowment for the Boat Club with generous donations from numerous Alumni. The aim is for this endowment to reach £1 million which would then provide the Boat Club with a secure financial future.
If you would like to get involved with this project please take a look at The Bowman Fund website.
Why is it called The Bowman Fund?
In September 2015, the trustees formally named the endowment fund “The Bowman Fund” in honour of both the then Principal of Brasenose College (Alan Bowman) and the Bow Man of the original BNC VIII of 1815 who would have been the first person across the finish line in an amateur rowing race!
