The Radley Mariners
Radleians first took to the water under the name of St Peter's College Boat Club from Sandford in 1849. Over the years the RCBC has known many successes and has developed oarsmen who have gone on to represent their university, club or country at the highest levels. The school has a history of distinguished and successful oarsmen and coaches.
Radley Mariners Boat Club (“RMBC”) is a rowing club authorised under GB Rowing rules. It is designed to promote the sport of Rowing particularly for OR oarsmen in their years after Radley. It also seeks to support Radley College Boat Club (RCBC) and parents and other supporters through the season. We are particularly proud that the overwhelming majority of OR Olympians have been Radley oarsmen in their youth.
In addition, the Radley Mariners Charitable Trust (“RMCT”) supports both RCBC and youth rowing in the Thames Valley region.
Radleians who have rowed at the College automatically become members of Radley Mariners Boat Club upon leaving and there are other members who have been associated with RCBC such as past and present coaches. Parents and other supporters who contribute to the RMCT will also be invited to become Associate Members.
