Your kids school is looking for sporty parents to help form a once in a lifetime boat crew with a GB Olympic Rower and row the famous Henley stretch of water in this unique VIP Days with members of the GB rowing squad.
This three-hour experience tailored to your personal levels of fitness and experience, you will meet at a boat club where you will be welcomed by the attending GB Gold Medallist who will give a 30-minute overview of their career. The group is then joined by the other GB Rowers who will then introduce you to life as an elite rower.
Then the coaching begins under the expert tutelage of the GB rowers and is tailored to your individual rowing experience. Your group then get to take to the water, with your illustrious Olympic rowing partner for a couple of memorable journeys.
We will then have a couple of short 300 metre races to determine the winning crews in our unique Sporty Parents Rowing Regatta and you will get a medal from an actual GB rowing medallist.
In Bristol, this will be in front of large crowds at the Harbourside Festival racing past the iconic SS Great Britain.
The experience gives you an awesome array of images for your social media of the day you rowed with a GB rower. Additional non-rowing guests are welcome to listen and watch proceedings throughout the day and of course get their photos taken with the Athletes.
