Oratory Cardinals sets out to provide old boys of The Oratory
School with a rowing club in which they can reunite for social
and competitive events.
Club has long been a registered name in the Rowing Almanack but
it was in 1997 that the Cardinals was taken on as an old boys rowing
venture. The membership has since doubled and doubled again, consequently
allowing the Club to support more events of a higher standard. 2000
was a significant year for the Cardinals with their highly successful
Henley debut, First Annual Dinner, and the launch of the Cardinals
website and subsequent movement of the Club's administration online.
The order of events since the Club's launch is documented with photos
and press cuttings in The Archive.
the generous support of The Oratory School Society, the Cardinals
manage to operate at minimal cost to their members. The Oratory
School Boat Club are always keen to support the Cardinals racing
movement by lending equipment.
