Spring Rowing Camp - Italy, 11-17 April

22 Canford athletes joined together with rowers from King’s Canterbury for another great experience of rowing and sculling at Lago d'Orta in Italy during the Easter holiday.

Each day started with a delicious 7am breakfast.   Two rowing sessions in the morning and a short water session late afternoon ensured that all had plenty of time on the water.  With major external exams just around the corner in the summer term, the early afternoons were given to study time to ensure that the camp was productive both in terms of rowing and revision.  Rowing three times a day under blue skies and flat calm conditions and in different combinations of crews gave rowers from both schools the opportunity to share experience and develop their skills in advance of the regatta season.

This was another very productive Spring camp for all rowers, and it was fantastic to experience the sport on such a picturesque stretch of water.  Our thanks go to our hosts at Lago d’Orta for another very memorable visit for us all.
