Cambridge University Lightweight Rowing Club (CULRC) is the University rowing club for lightweight male oarsmen at the University of Cambridge. In past years it has fielded two crews to race against Oxford University Lightweight Rowing Club (OULRC) in the Henley Boat Races: the lightweight Blue Boat and Granta, the lightweight reserve crew.


CULRC has raced OULRC, its Oxford counterpart, since 1975. The reserve boat, Granta, first raced Nephthys in 2000, although the club decided not to field a Granta crew since 2007.

For a brief period in 1999 - 2002 there was an active old boys club "Farmer" whose finest race was beating the 1999 Nephthys crew by 2L.
