West End Rowing Club’s Senior Men’s squad to take on the world!

At the 2022 Rowing National Champs, West End’s senior men dominated the field by winning the Senior Men’s 8+ and Senior Men’s 4-. After establishing themselves as the top men’s club crew in NZ, 10 athletes will now represent West End at the Henley Royal Regatta in the UK (racing in the Thames Challenge Cup) and then at the US Rowing National Champs in New Jersey, USA.

The team is made up of primarily university students aged 18-23 and the cost of this trip is being paid for by the athletes themselves. With borders reopening and the increased cost of travel, they’ll be paying $75,000 for flights, accommodation, car rental, boat/equipment rental, travel insurance, entry fees, meals and many other expenses. Please consider a donation to support their efforts to represent West End overseas.

The team leave for Henley on June the 18th.
