Floreat Castellum Boat Club (FCBC) is an Alumni network that provides support to the current University College Boat Club. All members of FCBC donate a monthly or annual amount to the FCBC fund, with the aim of providing extra equipment, boats and funds for a future substantial boat house renovation.

- Organises an annual reunion meal and a drinks reception at Henley Royal Regatta.
- Keeps UCBC alumni rowers in touch with current UCBC news via a mailing list.
- Raises awareness of any FCBC members who are competing in major races for their own clubs.
- Challenges UCBC after Durham Regatta each year.
- Co-ordinates race crews for those wishing to compete for FCBC.
- Fundraises for UCBC.
