The Vanet Rowing Team had a great induction session at The AHOY Centre last week, which will prepare us for the 8.5 mile charity row along the River Thames on August 9th.
At the induction, we watched a short video presentation showcasing all the work that goes into the centre and the benefits that children and young adults within the local community can achieve through sailing and rowing!
We also met with other teams who are training for the Meridian Pull as well as a team of 6 men who are going to be doing a 23 mile Channel Rowing Challenge which covers some of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.
After our initial meeting and pledge signing, we were given a tour of the centre and gym which is lined with Concept2 rowing machines.
All the staff at The AHOY Centre are exceptionally helpful and friendly and have a passion for the charity whilst ensuring that peoples lives really can be changed through sailing and rowing.
