Rowing GAP in New Zealand at the Home of Mahé

Rowing GAP in New Zealand at the Home of Mahé - Square Blades

Earlier in the year Square Blades and West End Rowing Club (W.E.R.C.) collaborated in creating a W.E.R.C./SB clothing collection. Which culminated in the Roundel and the Maori tees.

As part of the collaboration West End Rowing Club are also promoting their GAP Year programme. David Vallance, club captain, explains more:

"W.E.R.C., with our modern boathouse in the Saunders Reserve, Auckland, is one of New Zealand's premier rowing clubs.

We are the home club to a number of our country's international and R.P.C. rowing squad members - Mahé Drysdale and Stephen Jones perhaps the best known.

We have an ambition to establish lasting relationships with boat clubs and schools in the UK and around the world.

One way of achieving this is to offer young rowers the opportunity to come to New Zealand and row with us as a club rower or, possibly, a coach.

You'll enjoy the experience  and, of course, spend some time travelling and experiencing the delights and sights our beautiful country has to offer.

As one important, and exciting, project to help raise awareness of our club in the UK (and beyond) we are delighted to have collaborated with Square Blades to create the West End Collection.

If you're interested in a rowing GAP experience visit our website to find out a little more about us.

Start your journey to Auckland, and the Land of The Long White Cloud for an experience of a lifetime, enjoy some rowing, and a chance to make friends for life at West End.

Go Well."
