Nemesis Boat Club was formed in 2005 after the merger of The Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST. In June 2008 the club was affiliated with the ARA and it is now possible to race as Nemesis Boat Club including at Henley from 2009 (provided you are not a current student at the University of Manchester).

In February 2005 MUBC held its first Annual Dinner in Manchester Town Hall, almost 100 people attended and the night was a huge success. The Annual Dinner has gone from strength to strength and now includes the presentation of the Bridgewater Cup, to the winner of the MUBC 1st VIII vs. Nemesis race. In 2009 the Bridgewater Cup was presented to Nemesis BC for the first time after a row-over when the quays turned into something resembling the sea and the 1st VIII decided not to accpet the challenge from Nemesis BC.
