This week in the rowing online news several stories caught our eye:

  • Tale of two camps – Think rowing training in an idyllic location is practically a vacation? GB Team rower Rob Williams will tell you otherwise. Williams gives an insight into the British crew’s training schedule in Avis, Portugal. How does your training schedule compare?
  • Atlantic Odyssey: Day 5 – Tough Miles This crew of six have their eyes set on something other than gold: a world record. Aiming to be the first team to row across the Atlantic in under thirty days, rower Mark Beaumont speaks on their diet, speed, and struggles in the open ocean. Check out how with a rower’s perseverance and strength, new records can be set.
  • Olympic coaches: how to row like Redgrave – Have dreams of rowing like a pro?  In this article Olympic Rowing coach Paul Thompson shares fitness and training tips for rowers of all ranks.

There’s no delicate way to put this. If you’re a regular Rowperfect reader, you’re just . . . well . . . smarter than most people looking to improve their rowing, sculling, coxing or coaching.
