and for all kinds of training sessions. The usual water condition is flat, with occasional light chop thrown in for variation! Wind speeds in summer are usually very low.
Our camps are hosted at the CVK Brno rowing club, the top rowing club in Brno and among the top 5 in the Czech Republic. The beautifully located boat house is home to many Czech National Team members from the Juniors, U23 and Elite categories. Often, we host training camps for the Czech national team preparing for big regattas.
At the north end of the lake,the river Svratka flows through a beautiful gorge, and there is the possibility to extend the row by 6 more kilometres, passing by a medieval castle.
The camps include hotel rooms with breakfast in Wellness and Spa Resort hotels Santon and Maximus (see map above), located a short walk from the rowing club. The vibrant town centre of Brno, one of the top alternative city breaks according to The Guardian newspaper, is just a short tram ride away from the lake.
For those who want to do a volume rowing week, we can offer you up to three training sessions a day, all with coaching guidance, video and data analysis every day.
Rowing makes you hungry. A coffee break with snacks as well as a rich lunch buffet are included in the camp price.
