The Union Boat Club (also known as UBC), founded in 1851, is an athletic club in Boston. It is the longest continuously operating rowing club in Boston. Located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood along the Charles River, the Club has grown beyond rowing and now features squash and general fitness facilities for its 700 members. In 1914, UBC placed second in the prestigious Grand Challenge Cup. The 1914 crew lost to Harvard after beating a crew from Germany to enter the finals at the Henley Royal Regatta.
Union is the sister club of University Barge Club of Philadelphia. For more than 60 years, the two sister clubs have held an annual interclub "UBC" regatta. In 2009, Michelle Guerette, an eight-time senior US National Team member and two-time Olympian, joined Union Boat Club to serve as head coach.
