If you have looked through the About pages, we hope you have noticed our passion for the sport of rowing. Through our experiences in the sport we fully believe in the power and positive impact it can have on lives. 

We want to provide open information so that we can maximise the amount of people that can share similar experiences like the ones we have had with rowing. One of the great things about coaching is the moments when you see a click or a spark in someones eye that you can recognise as one that you have had yourself. Helping someone to get to that point is massively rewarding.
