Many of our squad members have been taking part in the Concept 2 spring VIII series over recent weeks. The series was a virtual way that crews of 8 could compete from the comfort of their own homes. It has allowed athletes to stay connected & competitive throughout the coronavirus lockdown period. Captains must select their final crew for each weekly challenge to allow the athletes to submit their verified score to the competition. The schedule of events over the 5 weeks was as follows:
