Look out for our special head racing edition of Rowing & Regatta magazine from tomorrow, Friday 23 February


The February March edition of Rowing & Regatta is out on Friday, 23 February, in print and digital.

Ahead of the big Tideway head races, we include top tips from Dr Chris Shambrook, the GB Rowing Team’s sports psychologist, on how you can perform at your best on the day.


We also look at ten head races with a difference at home and abroad to spice up your schedule for 2019.

Meanwhile, our Boat Races preview offers an inside look at how the BBC covers the day, plus we have an exclusive interview with top presenter Clare Balding and student presidents Daphne Martschenko (CUWBC) and Iain Mandale (OUBC).

On the coaching side, there are tips on transitioning from head racing to regatta training to make sure you’re ready for the summer season. Plus, does mileage really make champions? We look at the science behind coaching legend Steve Fairbairn’s well-known phrase.

All this, and more. Look out for the February March issue – free to all British Rowing members.
