Rowing for the England Rowing Team is an important part of the England Talent Pathway. In line with the ethos of the event, British Rowing sees the Home International Regatta as a key event in the journey for rowers and coaches with aspirations of representing Great Britain and the GB Rowing Team. Taking part for the England Team (and other nations) is an important development opportunity for rowers and coaches wishing to gain international experience.
