Spend some time rowing on the River Thames with some of London 2012’s star athletes, and meet one of GB’s gold medallists on this VIP Rowing Experience in Henley-on-Thames. Once you’ve been greeted by the Olympians at one of Henley’s rowing clubs you’ll get to take part in a Q&A session with the athletes, learning all you’ve ever wanted to know (provided you ask the questions) about elite performance and the thrill of rowing under the watchful eyes of millions. After the Q&A you’ll be given advice on the best rowing techniques along with time to practice on a rowing machine, then it’ll be time to take your boat out onto the water for a proper hands-on training session. There will be a GB Rower in each boat for an exciting session of quad sculls, with some friendly competition with the other boats on the water to keep you on your toes. Once you’re back at the rowing club you’ll get to enjoy some post-experience hospitality and Q&A with an Olympic gold medallist. Indulge your rowing passions and train with some of GB’s brightest rowing stars – this is an experience not to be missed.
