British Rowing is recruiting young people across Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas with no rowing experience who may have the potential to row for Great Britain.

British Rowing are looking for 14-18 year old boys who are 184cm (6ft) and girls who are 175cm (5ft 8) or taller to attend a taster & trial day at Gloucester Boathouse on October 8th, no prior experience necessary.
