COEP Boat Club, founded in 1928, is one of the oldest in the country. Since the founding year of the Boat Club, the Annual Regatta has been taking place. The Boat Club boasts of having more than 100 different boats, most of which are unique and heritage boats. For example, the two Eighters, that were purchased from England in 1943 or the Diamond Sculls that were left back by the British. Some of the trainee boats, like the tub scull, clinquered pair and tub four have been manufactured in-house. Over the years, the Boat Club has produced many national and international level rowers and kayakers, who have brought laurels for the college.
