Wolfson College Boat Club (WCBC) is the rowing club for members of Wolfson College, Cambridge. The club was founded in 1968 as University College Boat Club and became Wolfson in 1973 (along with the renaming of the college). The clubs shares a boathouse on the River Cam with the college boat clubs of Corpus Christi, Girton and Sidney Sussex. For the majority of the decade the clubs men's and women's first boats have stood in Division 2 of the May and Lent bumps.
Starting as a mixed eight (4 men, 4 women), with a female coxswain, in 1968 the crew made its way through the Getting-On race and into the May Bumps. In the 1969 May Bumps Wolfson claimed blades, managing to move up six positions with an over-bump. The 1970 Lents crew also won blades. In the 1970 Mays Wolfson commanded a sandwich position between the 4th and 5th divisions and was coached by Johan Schreiner - a Norwegian international oarsman.
In the 1971 Lents the club won blades once again.
In 2015 May Bumps, M1 and M2 won blades.
