Our cox/coach Kylie coined the vision of a club where parents and kids can row at the same time.
She says that it does not make sense that parents have to shuttle their aspiring young athletes to their youth team practice in the afternoon and then try to find an "adult" time slot in the evenings or early mornings for their own workout.
We have made a first step in that direction with 2 mothers bringing their daughters along. Next step would be to get enough teenagers to form their own boat.
We also have proud fathers. The daughter of our Aussie just won the Bavarian W8+ title with the Wurzburg composite crew (2 seat, second from right).
You should see him beam. Now he tries to do the same at the upcoming Master Nationals. A little family internal competition.
