The senior squads train 6 days a week. On Wednesday afternoons and at the weekends, training is done on the water. Training on Monday, Tuesday and Friday is all land training based at the gym. Thursdays are days off.
The senior squads compete across the country in lots of major races such as Fours Head, BUCS Head, WeHORR, HORR in the winter and BUCS, MET, Reading, Marlow, Henley Women’s and Henley Royal Regatta in the summer months.
There are three week-long training camps every year for the senior squads. These are always really fun and a great way to step on with training in preparation for some of the more important races.
- Winter training camp – Boat house in Chiswick
- Easter training camp – Avis, Portugal
- Pre-Henley training camp – Henley-on-Thames. This camp is for those crews selected to represent UCL at Henley Women’s and Henley Royal Regatta
