Beat The Medallist - Rowing Registration

rowingMeet 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 to 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.
