Dear Alumni,

My name is Deanna Coleman and I am the Alumni & Press Officer for 2019-20. I joined UStABC in my second year at university having been drawn in by the friendliness and commitment the Boat Club athletes showed. After one year of the novice programme I have gone on to row at my home club (Royals Rowing Club Chester) and during my study abroad (Hong Kong). 

The Boat Club's inclusivity and family-feel extends far beyond the limits of our small-town-bubble, which is why I am thrilled to be a part of our ever-expanding network of supporters. Working together with alumni, parents, the Eden Boat Club, and the University, I have no doubt that this year we will continue to excel, exceed expectations, and grow as a Saints Rowing family. Find out below the number of ways you can get involved or be a part of our development.

As ever, I am always keen to hear from alumni,

Eden BC is the alumni rowing club for the University of St Andrews. Founded by a small group of alumni in 2015, the club aims to be in all encompassing support network for the current club. 


We aim to promote student and alumni relations via several social events throughout the season, including the now infamous annual alumni dinner in London and the ever-popular Henley Royal Regatta BBQ and drinks party.


Our final goal is to help the student club to perform at its peak potential by raising funds to purchase equipment.


The club started, in the Summer of 2017, the UStABC Magazine. The magazine is a bi-annually distributed update of our new to all of our alumni! To be in receipt of the magazine, please get in touch with or fill out the Eden BC membership form which is linked in the above section.
