From Magdalen College JCR

Rowing at Magdalen is great fun and caters for all levels: from absolute beginners to considerably experienced. Magdalen is in the top division for rowing across the colleges so training is taken seriously and can be quite tough (particularly for those in the top group for men and women) but despite the blisters and the early mornings it’s an incredibly, if not the most, rewarding experience. Unlike other sports, there is a whole cult around rowing: competitions (torpids in Hilary and Summer VIIIs in Trinity term) attract thousands of spectators and free Pimms flows like rivers.
