Join Zoe de Toledo for a Coxing the Tideway Heads clinic on March 9, 2018
Get an edge on the competition before this year’s major Tideway heads, WEHoRR, HORR, and SHORR by attending the Chattercox Coxing the Tideway Heads clinic. The evening is being hosted by Zoe de Toledo who learned her craft on the Tideway but as Zoe herself confesses, we can all make mistakes, especially when the pressure of racing is on. Zoe has coxed internationally at Olympic & European level and has seen victory in the Boat Race and at Henley Royal Regatta.
The workshop will cover the following and more:
- The fastest racing line
- Distance markers
- Managing the warm-up and marshalling
- Structuring your race plan
- Q&A session
Discounted early bird tickets available! Tickets can be bought on the day if spaces are still available at a cost of £18
Zoe says “I have been lucky enough to have the chance to race the Tideway Heads with a huge range of crews, from overall and pennant winners, to school and club crews; from leading off the race with bow number 1 to starting dead last. I’ve experienced disasters on the way to the start, slower crews that refuse to yield, and being overtaken within the first minute of the race.”
Zoe is offering coxes the benefit of her experience on the Tideway in a coxing clinic, Coxing the Tideway Heads, to be held on March 9, 2018. “This year I want to offer the benefit of these experiences, my successes, but most importantly, my failures, to other coxes,” says Zoe. In 2018 the Women’s Head, Eight’s Head, and School’s Head will run over one long weekend from the 10th – 12th March and Zoe will be hosting the clinic immediately before the racing weekend starts. She says “We will be running this clinic at Dulwich College Boat Club in Putney to allow as many coxes travelling into London for the racing as possible to attend”.
The Coxing the Tideway Heads clinic will not only cover the ideal racing line but will also go over ideas for managing the warm up and marshalling, constructing a race plan, overtaking and being overtaken, as well as giving you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the races. “We will have some top rowing traders at the event to show off their wares’, Zoe said, “and will be putting together some competition prizes to be won on the day”.
