Radley Mariners Rowing
Radley Mariners Boat Club (RMBC) is a rowing club authorised under GB Rowing rules. It promotes rowing for OR oarsmen and, from time to time, has crews at events including Henley.
With three medallists at Tokyo 2020, we are particularly proud that the overwhelming majority of OR Olympians have been Radley oarsmen in their youth. RMBC also helps arrange hospitality at regattas and head races for parents including an annual lunch at the National Schools Regatta, a drinks party at Henley, and a pub gathering on the Chiswick embankment to watch the Schools Head.
Associated with RMBC, the Radley Mariners Charitable Trust (RMCT) raises money to:
- Help RCBC purchase certain equipment not provided by the College.
- Support parents with the cost of training camps and international rowing.
- Support non-Radley youth rowing in the Thames Valley region.
Radleians who have rowed at the College are offered membership of RMBC upon leaving and there are other members who have been associated with RCBC such as past and present coaches. They are entitled to wear the Mariners’ tie. Parents and other supporters who contribute to the RMCT will also be invited to become Associate Members and receive invitations to events.

After a hiatus, we are looking to relaunch the Radleian Society Racing Syndicate in 2024.
The first horse who raced in the Radley colours was College Oak who won four races for the syndicate including in a valuable race at Ascot. Unfortunately, the ability to attend the races and stable visits were diluted at that time because of the Coronavirus pandemic and so we are very keen to reignite this venture.
The syndicate is very much open to anyone connected to Radley to join. The horse would again be in training with Jamie Snowden (1992, H), fresh from another Cheltenham Festival victory earlier this year thanks to You Wear It Well.
The intention is to find a mare to lease and keep the number of shares in the syndicate limited to 20. Shares in this proposed venture would be in the region of £2000 for a 5% share and you would receive all of the usual benefits such as owner’s badges, trips to Jamie’s stables in Lambourn, regular communications about your horse and a share of the prize money with a percentage being donated to Radley’s charity partner.
So, whether you are an old boy, a staff member or a current or former parent, please make contact so we can add you to our interest list over the coming months. There obviously needs to be a decent level of support in place before any horse is considered so, please do support this venture if you can.
Being a racehorse owner in this syndicate is unique at it provides you with a fun way to connect with Radley as well as friends, old and new!
Finally, this exciting venture will be delivered with the support of Henry Kimbell as Syndicate Manager. Henry has run racing syndicates for over a decade, including a successful model for Stowe. He will work alongside Jamie to ensure everyone is kept well informed about all the news and events taking place for the syndicate.
“I am delighted to be relaunching the Radian Society Racing Syndicate. Previously we had College Oak in our colours who won over four occasions and was quite successful, despite the syndicate coinciding with the height of the pandemic.
“Old Radians, parents and staff are encouraged to join us as we need your support to get this venture off the ground!”
How we will look after you:
- Owners’ badges for every race.
- A private morning for members of the syndicate at Folly House stables in Lambourn, including a tour of the yard, meeting some of Jamie’s stable stars and a trip up onto the historic gallops to see our horse exercise.
- Box hospitality at certain racedays.
- Access to the parade ring and opportunity to meet your jockey.
- Regular communications through email and a syndicate WhatsApp group.
- The ability to reconnect with old school friends, and make new connections.
- 10% of any prize money will be donated to the Radleian Society’s Charity Alliance (an Old Radleian charity selected each year)* with the remaining distributed equally amongst the shareholders.
