RowingChat with RowPerfect

Recently, I had the great honour and pleasure of being a guest on the RowPerfect RowingChat series.  It was lovely to spend an hour chatting all things rowing and parenting with RowPerfect’s Rebecca.  If you missed the live show, you can catch up on YouTube and hear lots of advice on the highs and lows of parenting a young rower.
