2022 Boathouse Anniversary

The Nicholas Bull Boathouse Anniversary: alumni vs student race

This year will mark the 10th anniversary of the opening of The Nicholas Bull Boathouse. Situated on the banks of the Exeter Canal at the bottom of our 4.5km stretch, the Boathouse was opened on Saturday 13 October 2012 and named after former University of Exeter Boat Club Captain Nicholas Bull (Chemistry, 1973) who was instrumental in the facility’s inception and construction.
