Team Captains

Team Racing Captains

This page lists elected or appointed Cambridge team racing captains since 1912. Normally, but not always, this is the person who captained the Varsity Team of that year. However, the captains of the pre-World War I Varsity Matches remain in some doubt and there was no Junior Head of the Club until 1921/22.

In the past the position has coincided with the elected Junior Head of the Club, but that changed when sections were established in 1986. From that time the overall University Team Captain has been the elected head of the Team Racing Section. The elected Head of the Club has been a separate position, as explained on the Historic Officers page. The title associated with the team racing position has varied over the years: Rear Commodore, Vice Commodore, Vice President and, since 2014, Vice Commodore.
