Eden Boat Club is the official club for all alumni and supporters of the University of St Andrews Boat Club. The Club takes its name from the River Eden in Guardbridge where the original boathouse once stood.
The objectives of the Club, as outlined in our Constitution, are:
To mobilise and facilitate moral and financial support to UStABC
To communicate with the alumni and other supporting groups
To grow the alumni network of UStABC
To organise formal and informal social opportunities to support the achievement of the aforementioned objectives
To provide alumni the opportunity to row and race representing the Club
In order to coordinate the pursuit of our objectives, Eden Boat Club is run by an annually elected committee. We work in collaboration with the UStABC student commitee and the Club Stewards to ensure we are best supporting the students. Read our constitution here.
