Read the Book, See the Film and Row the Boat!
This January sees the release of the ‘The Boys in the Boat’, directed by George Clooney, it is the true, plucky underdog story of the USA rowing team’s efforts to get to and then compete in Hitler’s showpiece 1936 Olympics. If you get curious to see how it feels in a rowing eight, as you all work together in such a fragile craft, you can find out with the Devil’s Elbow at Trent Lock. Maybe you rowed before and the film stirs long buried memories – do come back to rowing at a friendly club on a great stretch of river. See how to join here
