125 years of women’s rowing…

FISA celebrates 125 years of women’s rowing, and earlier this year, on International Women’s Day, WorldRowing published this brilliant article, featuring the Club’s very own Penny Chuter. Penny is our Club Coach, and we are incredibly lucky that she now lives in Mylor, and supports all of us in trying to become better rowers. A previous coach to Olympians, now we benefit from her wisdom and experience.

Speaking of coaching, It’s almost the time of year that the training programme begins, as we head into Autumn with a focus on slow, technical drills. This is important as it serves to correct any bad habits that we have slipped into, and fix the ‘muscle memory’ so that when the rates increase, we’re more likely to be technically better, as our bodies do what they’ve been drilled to do.

Coxing course

Congratulations to everyone on completing the course last Friday and Saturday – It was a long day, but everyone got a lot of practising done, so it was well worth it!

For those who trained in the morning then rowed on the coxing course the GPS clocked up about 20 miles – that’s nearly from Black Rock to Fowey!
