Essen regatta provides opportunity for rowers to get “race ready”
Three members of the GB Rowing Team for the forthcoming European Championships will have an opportunity to get “race ready” when they compete at the 2015 International Huegel Regatta in Essen, Germany this weekend.
The two-day regatta – featuring Senior, U23 and Lightweight races – will also provide the chance for other members of the GB Rowing Team to get some competitive rowing under their belts ahead of a big season.
Double Olympian Beth Rodford – who has been named along with Melanie Wilson, Tina Stiller and Jess Leyden in the women’s quadruple scull for the European Championships – will contest the single scull on both Saturday and Sunday in Essen.
Lee-Green said: “This weekend is a chance to be race ready and then hopefully when the Europeans come along I’ll be nearer my peak.”
A number of U23 rowers will also be looking to impress ahead of this summer’s World U23 Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
