Seville 2015 rowing camp gives ‘better technique, fitness and a sun tan’

“Having heard stories about 6.30 am starts and three long tiresome sessions a day, my expectations were not high.

However, this quickly changed when we arrived on a very pleasant sunny afternoon in Seville which we spent enjoying a light, technical paddle.

After the first day eased us into the trip, the usual tradition and necessity of seat racing followed. This is when each year group races against their team mates in many 1km races in fours to decipher the crews for the upcoming National Schools’ Regatta. After this eventful and painful start, the rowing continued in order to impress and outperform the other schools there, namely Hampton and Monmouth School. As the week came to a close with much progress being made in the year groups, we were allowed one afternoon off to explore the beautiful and culture filled city of Seville.

On the way back, I asked the others in the coach what they gained from the week. The response was better technique, fitness and a sun tan.”
