AFTER NINE AMAZING YEARS WE BRING TO AN END THESE SHARED ROWING DAYS...VIP ROWING DAY: CAN YOU BEAT THE MEDALLIST?
THE EXPERIENCE: VIP ROWING DAY:
After nine years of amazing experiences at Henley on Thames, these great times are coming to an end. In 2023 we will be delivering on demand exclusive group experiences. (See shop for details).
As part of a group no more than 18 people you will meet at a boat club in Henley where you will be welcomed by the GB Rowers who through the entertaining Q and A, will debrief the Tokyo Regatta look forward to Paris and give you an insight what it takes to reach the highest levels in the sport of rowing.
You will then be introduced to life as an elite rower. If required, initial coaching will be done on the rowing machines where advice on techniques will be given. Then to the boat shed where the boat familiarisation will take place.
Quadruple sculls will take to the water complete with a GB Rower in each boat and each boat crew will have a short RELAXING training session on the water followed by rows down the famous stretch of water including a timed sprint, with a GB Rower.Of course, if you lose you can blame them.
THE BEAT THE MEDALLIST CHALLENGE
After the Q and A the rowers will take to the water and do a 250 metre timed sprint. This unique challenge pits your boat against the attending GB Rowers who will be laying down a target time over 250 metres but don't worry your boat of three will have one of the GB Rowers to help you beat the time on your two timed sprints as part of your 50 minutes on the water.
Your boat generates time bonuses to help beat the time set on the day by the GB Rowers as part of Beat the Medallist Challenge Series.
The GB Medallists will set a time on the day.
Your boat also gets to set two times on the day as part of this experience day.
Your 'impossible' task is aided by accruing time bonuses through fundraising support from your friends and family.
This not compulsory but it will be an awesome achievement if you choose to do this.
Throughout the experience the chance to talk all things Olympic with the athletes and if already a keen rower drain them for tips and advice. Additional guests are welcome to watch proceedings throughout the day and to attend the Q and A and photo session with the rowers.
