VIP ROWING DAY: CAN YOU BEAT THE GB ROWERS?

 

 

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.

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 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.

 

THE CHALLENGE IS THEN LAID DOWN:

After the Q and A the rowers will take to the water and do a 250 metre timed sprint.

 

Your sprint to glory and Sporting Rewards:

  • Your boat of three is testing itself against the  other crews in a Hall of Fame. 

  • Generate your name on the Legacy 300 Rowing Hall of Fame as well as individual prizes.

  • IF FUNDRAISING You are aiming to beat the time set by the GB Medallist.

  • ​You can help your task by accruing time bonuses through your fundraising.

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 trips on the famous stretch of water including two timed sprints, each with a different GB Rower. Of course if you lose you can blame them.

 

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.
