About the day

General Auction Rowing Promo from Billy Cotton on Vimeo.

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 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.

At the post experience reception, you will be joined by the GB Rowers and a Rowing Gold Medalist to enjoy the post regatta Hospitality with the chance to talk all things London 2012 and Rio 2016 with the athletes.
