Corporate rowing experiences announced

Cavendish Hospitality has won a three-year contract with Leander Club to sell exclusive rowing experiences with its elite athletes.  

Leander Club at Henley-on-Thames is the spiritual home of world rowing.  It is also the world’s most successful single-sports club - measured by Olympic medals.

The objective of the experience at Leander Club is to have fun.  The emphasis will be on technique and safety and under the supervision of the club’s expert coaches the guests will experience the thrill of rowing as a team in a Coxed Rowing VIII. 

The day will include a fascinating and insightful guided tour of the Club and boathouse, time and practice on the rowing machines in the state-of-the-art gym - and most importantly an opportunity to try your hand in a Coxed Rowing VIII.  Five of your guests in each boat, will enjoy 1.5 hours on this beautiful stretch of the River Thames.  They will be accompanied by three elite athletes and an experienced Cox.  The on-the-water experience will finish with their very own Boat Race!

Past Olympians including Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent, as well as the Club’s current international athletes, will be available to lead and facilitate the Cavendish Rowing Experiences from May 2014.

Leander Club and Cavendish Hospitality are offering daytime packages through to October and evening packages during the summer months.

Cavendish Hospitality is proud to offer this unique and thrilling opportunity to entertain and motivate your guests as they have fun on the river, whilst absorbing the ethos of working alongside some of the world’s top rowing athletes.
