Affectionately known as R&R, the magazine aims to cover all aspects of the sport worldwide from the Olympic Games, Henley Royal Regatta and the Boat Race through to annual head races, indoor rowing plus surf boat, gig, coastal and even extreme rowing.
Featuring some of the UK’s highest profile rowing contributors, R&R provides the inside look at the sport – all delivered with passion, humour and flair. With expert coaching and training advice in every issue plus all the latest news and gear advice, R&R is the read the dedicated rower shouldn’t be without!
Welcome to the new-look April / May R&R magazine – complete with a fresh redesign! What does your rowing club mean to you? We ask readers about their club and explore the role of sports clubs in a 21st-century digital society. With regatta season firmly on the horizon, we spotlight three popular competitions that have their own innovative twist. Hundreds of student rowers will race at BUCS Regatta in early May, but how can you perform at your best over the three-day competition? The GB Rowing Sport Science Team provides expert advice. Our coaching section also focuses on milk and assesses the nutrients and recovery potential of alternative options. Finally, Olympic silver medallist Vicky Thornley shares her approach to holistic health and well-being in the final article of her series. Don’t miss the April / May edition of R&R!
