World Rowing Cup III - Lucerne - How has the time flown by and we are only 2 sleeps away from getting amongst international crews at the 3rd and final World Rowing Cup.

Since our triumph in Aiguebelette we have been getting stuck into our work on a 7km lake just 30mins drive from Lucerne. It has been a great location to us, been delivering great flat water to row on as well as great chefs at the hotel serving great food. Ensuring that we are delivering top performances during training. It will be a sad day to say goodbye, but not quite yet, we will be back for 2 weeks straight after the World Cup.

Entries for Lucerne are up from Aiguebelette, we have our usual suspects for the medals coming from Denmark, Great Britain and France. We welcome to the party Australia, Italy and the Dutch. All highly worthy of a place in the final and a spot on the podium. We say goodbye to USA and China. Heats are on Friday, Semi Final on Saturday and Final on Sunday with Sky Sport NZ having live coverage on the finals. 

Also some idea on what we are up against, have a click through to the following article which talks about one of our top competitors. A very worth while read.
