CUBC mourns Dr. Tim Senior


The Members of Cambridge University Boat Club are greatly saddened by the sudden
passing of Dr Tim Senior, BRCL Chair and alumnus of St Catharine’s Cambridge, after racing
at Henley Fours and Eights Head on Saturday 11 February 2023.


Tim was appointed Chair of BRCL, the Boat Race Company, in April 2021 and had an
immediate impact, he was instrumental in securing a new title partnership with Gemini and
in returning the Boat Race to the Championship Course post-pandemic in 2022.


He learnt to row at Nottingham University and competed for St Catharine’s College BC in the
Lents and Mays in 1994 whilst studying for an MPhil, before completing a DPhil in
Economics and an MBA at Oxford University. Tim continued to enjoy his rowing at London
Rowing Club and more recently at Upper Thames Rowing Club where he competed in the
Thames Cup, at Henley Royal Regatta, in 2021.


Tim will be mourned by rowing friends across the country. He leaves behind his wife
and three children to whom we send our deepest condolences.
