Laker Navy Preparing for Henley

After another successful spring campaign, twelve women and thirteen men from the Laker Navy have the privilege of representing Grand Valley State University in international competition. This summer, members of the team will race at the Henley Royal Regatta and for the first time our women will race in the Henley Royal Regatta with the men. Hosted in Henley-on-Thames, England, these races are among the most prestigious events in rowing worldwide. The men and women have all worked extremely hard this year for the opportunity to compete in these historic regattas.

The women’s squad will send an eight and a pair to the Henley Women’s Regatta. The Women’s Varsity 8+ is coming off a highly competitive racing season, with a silver at ACRA being the most recent event. All the women are excited to race and ready to rise to any challenges they may face.

The men will send two fours and a pair.

This year the men and women are traveling together and will be training in Kastoria, Greece from June 20th-27th leading into Henley, called the Kastoria Training Camp. Then the team will compete in the Henley Royal Regatta. The team travel itinerary can be found here.

Training has already begun for both squads; all are striving to push each other to gain speed in the weeks leading up to their departures. Thus far, both teams have been making gains in practice – which should make for an unforgettable trip and racing experience.

Racing draws, schedules, trip details, and more information for the trip will be posted here. Check back often for the most recent updates.
