All set for a big weekend of action at GB Rowing Team Senior and U23 Trials


Rowers have started arriving at Caversham ahead of this weekend’s GB Rowing Teams Senior and U23 Trials.

The final entry list for two big days of competition has been confirmed, with Olympic and World medalist Matt Langridge making a last-minute switch from the men’s pair to the single scull.

That came after partner James Foad – who won men’s pair silver with Langridge at the World Championships last year – was ruled out with a broken foot.

There will be 149 rowers in action across six categories over the next two days, including 13 current World Champions.

All will be keen to impress ahead of a season which will culminate with the World Championships in Aiguebelette, France, which doubles as an Olympic and Paralympic qualification regatta for Rio 2016.

But the Tokyo 2020 Games are the target for many of the younger rowers, who will be looking to show their potential and secure a place in the GB Rowing Team U23 squad ahead of their 2015 World Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

Sir David Tanner, GB Rowing Team Performance Director, said: “We are looking forward to two days of quality racing.

“The focus is on Rio 2016 but, for the younger rowers, it is also about getting on the radar for Tokyo 2020 which, in rowing terms, is not that far away.”

The weather promises to be sunny on both days but predictions for a strong wind on Saturday afternoon means there may be a change to the racing timetable, with the semi-finals moved to Sunday morning.

A final decision will be made at 9am on Saturday ahead of the time trials, which will run as scheduled from 9.30am-12pm.

(NB – please check schedules carefully. This timetable may change subject to weather conditions)

Saturday 09:30 – 12:00 Time-Trials
Saturday 15:00 – 17:45 Semi-Finals
Sunday 10:00 – 13:00 Finals
