R&R #70 – May 2013


The May 2013 issue of Rowing & Regatta, published by Legacy Sport Media on behalf of British Rowing, is out now! R&R #70 has increased to a 72-page issue, offering British Rowing members and digital subscribers even more great rowing content…

The latest big event was the GB Rowing Trials at Caversham, offering London 2012 veterans and new blood alike the chance to compete for seats in future GB boats. The big surprise being single sculler Charles Cousins’ victory over Alan Campbell – but R&R coverage delves deeper, providing analysis of the M1x as well as featuring up-and-coming ‘ones to watch’ embarking on their potential row to Rio!

Other headline features include an update on the renamed discipline of Para-Rowing, as Britain’s finest adaptive rowers vie for Paralympic class seats. The GBRow 2013 is an open sea challenge, with competitors setting off to race around Great Britain, and we introduce the contenders. Alongside the regular R&R coaching section, there’s a discussion of the relative merits of cross-training. Also in the interests of fitness, the third and final instalment of R&R’s rowing machine test pits the Oarsport Swingulator against the Oartec Simulator – which of the dynamic due will win out?

Plus there’s a report on the British Masters, 10 tips for Henley Regatta, ‘Hidden Depths’ meets a West Country chef and oarsman, and in the first of a new series of Event Guides we focus on Reading Amateur Regatta.

With the addition of news, letters, coaching, technique, nutrition, history, classifieds, a monthly calendar and more, there’s plenty to enjoy in May’s R&R. Check it out on iTunes for iPhone and iPad, also available on Android for mobiles and tablets, or online via your browser as Rowing & Regatta Digital.
