GB Pararowing Dev Squad Easter Training Camp

24 Apr

The Easter Bunny might have brought lots of chocolate this past weekend, but for the GB Pararowing Development Squad, the sunny four-day weekend meant an intense training camp at Marlow Rowing Club. The camp was run by England Talent Pathway Coach Ella Willott and supported by Eric Kent (Agrecroft), John Gill (Marlow) and Lisa Knill (Marlow) with rowers attending from Swansea, Agecroft, Dart Totnes, Peterborough and Marlow.  The all day session included lots of work on the elements of the strike as well as plenty of mileage. It also included a number of firsts with (a) a full women’s PR3 4- (see photo above), and (b) a para mixed double of PR1 and PR3.

PR3 Sophie Harris reported…

  • We were made to feel very welcome and a part of the club. They were very hospitable as always. We’ve all developed our skills and technique in our given boats four pair and singles also adaptive double during this camp. It certainly kickstarted our summer season and future racing season. Doing the racing starts against the able crew senior women’s was really good to use as a bench mark when aiming towards future races. Ella Willott has done a good job and her patience is impeccable as always and nice to have the input of Eric and Lisa on the launches.”
