Westminster School Boat Club

Westminster School Boat Club is the oldest rowing club in the world. Anecdotal evidence exists for rowing at Westminster in the 18th century and official records date back to the 'Water Ledger' of 1813. Pink was chosen by Westminster as the School's colour for the rowing match against Eton College of 4 May 1837; before this race, both schools wore blue.

Crews containing boys and girls who attend, or are affiliated to, Westminster School are formed to race at all levels of school rowing. The boat house is also that of the Elizabethan Boat Club, made up of Old Westminsters, who compete in major domestic and international races.
