VIP ROWING DAY

 

 

This experience is the unique opportunity to Row alongside a GB Rower, past, present and no doubt future medal winners as well. Meet at a boat club in Henley where you will be welcomed by the GB Gold Medallist.

 

Through the entertaining Q and A, you will get to glimpse what it takes to achieve the highest honour in the sport of rowing.

You will then be joined by other GB Rowers and introduced to life as an elite rower. 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. We will endeavour to mix and match the crews and GB Rowers.

 

Then entirely marshalled by your GB Rower, we may then have a few short races , of course if you lose you can blame them.

Throughout the experience the chance to talk all things London 2012 and Rio 2016 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.
