August September 2019 Rowing & Regatta magazine is out

The latest Rowing & Regatta magazine is now available to digital subscribers – and the print edition is in the post


The August September Rowing & Regatta looks ahead to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, with the GB Rowing Team qualifying ten Olympic-class boats and three Paralympic-class boats at this month’s World Rowing Championships. In addition to our Worlds report, Martin Cross talks to Brendan Purcell, British Rowing’s Director of Performance, about his role in building team spirit and cohesion in an exclusive interview.

Back in August, the world’s top juniors tested out the Olympic regatta course at Tokyo and Rowing & Regatta includes thoughts on the championships and venue from GB junior coach Mark Wilkinson and junior rower Miles Devereux.


The Tokyo theme continues with Japanese lightweight rower Ayami Oishi sharing insights into the local rowing scene plus our coaching section explores the meticulous preparation needed to compete at the Games next year.

GB Rowing Team chef Marcin Mazur provides three delicious recipes

After a packed summer of racing we also celebrate other highlights of the season, including GB’s best-ever performance at the U23s, the British Rowing Junior Championships and Masters, and of course the inaugural Beach Sprints.
