Jorvik Alumni Group

We are the alumni rowing club for the University of York boat club. We were established in 2011 with the aim of organising events for alumni throughout the year, offering support to UYBC and occasionally giving people an excuse to jump back in a boat.

Since our inception we have launched three annual events which have gone from strength to strength as word spreads and more and more alumni get involved. 

  • Jorvik vs. UYBC Boat Race: a 400m dash in Henley-on-Thames in April. Jorvik currently top the standings 2:1 with one dead heat. Let us know if you’d like to race or come down to cheer us on!
  • Henley Royal Regatta Picnic: we have a pitch in Henley during the regatta in July where we provide drinks and nibbles on the Saturday afternoon for alumni and their guests. As a member you will get invited to this annual event.
  • Jorvik Dinner: an evening of blazers, black tie and dresses held in November for alumni and their guests. Usually held in one of the grand boat houses in South West London along the river Thames, this is a great opportunity to dress up in your glad rags, catch up with old crew mates and dance the night away with fellow Jorvikians.
