Being a cox is a lot more than just steering a boat. You are a psychologist, a leader and a motivator. You understand how the boat feels, can spot technical inconsistencies and are an astute tactician.
Do you want to lead our rowers to victory in next seasons Summer Eights Regatta? Are you an enthusiastic and motivated individual with a keen eye to navigate our crews onto the best racing line? Can you visualise the sensational bump on Boat House Island before 15,000 spectators? If so, then coxing might well be for you!
We welcome coxes of all abilities to come on down to the boat club. Whether you have experience coxing at a previous club or are keen to try for the very first time, SEHBC welcome you with open arms. We pride ourselves on successfully mentoring complete beginners into experienced coxswains over the course of an academic year. For the particularly diligent it is not impossible for complete beginners to ascend into a position where one can be confident to trial at University Blues level during their time at the Hall.
To cox in any of the University's clubs you must obtain a coxing licence. These are obtained by attending a coxing registration meeting of which there are normally two at the start of each term. Should you enter the University with a large amount of previous coxing experience you may be exempted from attending the full duration of this meeting.
If you are interested in coxing for the Hall or would like to give it a go then we urge you to speak to our Captain of Coxes who will be able to assist - firstname.lastname@example.org
