If you could improve your starts would you do it?


Why, oh why are racing starts such an enigma?

Why do we find it so hard to get them 100% right every time?

Why do things go wrong on a start and how does that impact the rest of our race?

Masters coaches Marlene Royle and Rebecca Caroe set out to find answers to all these questions. And now they are ready to share the solutions with you.

The Racing Starts Challenge

The Racing Starts Challenge

Running over 3 days in May, Royle and Caroe are teaching rowing racing starts – for anyone who wants to learn (or re-learn) how to get it right every time you race.

If you are ready to take your rowing to the next level in 2021….you simply can’t afford to miss this challenge where we are going to show you how to:
● Turn your racing starts into a confident part of your regatta performance… where you are proud of what you and your crew can achieve
● Turn your mental approach to racing starts from a “meh” to a “Hell Yeah!”
