Bangor University Boat Club(BUBC) is the rowing club of Bangor University[1] run for and by the university's students. The club's home water is Llyn Padarn in the nearby village of Llanberis, approximately 20 minutes outside Bangor.

The club has a membership base of experienced and novice rowers. BUBC competes in BUCS events throughout the year and its members attend local head races and regattas.


Rowing in Bangor dates back to 1901 when the club was first started. BUBC used to be situated at a boathouse on the Menai Straights taking advantage of a stretch of open water between the Menai Suspension Bridge and Garth Pier. Since then this location has been deemed a health and safety risk and the club was relocated to Llyn Padarn, Llanberis.
