Our impact How we help Meet, Sam What life skills has rowing taught you? I learnt a lot about time management and organisation. Rowing also taught me about hard work, perseverance and dedication. How has rowing helped mold your life choices? Rowing helped me in deciding that I wanted to go to university and where I wanted to go. I will be involved with the sport for many more years now. How has LYR impacted your life? My rowing career would not have been half as successful had it not been for LYR. LYR were a great support to me throughout my time with them. LYR gave me countless opportunities to develop and succeed. Being a part of LYR allowed me to travel overseas, for training camps, races at the European Indoor Championships and the CRASH B’s Indoor World Championships. I have many memories and lifelong friends as a result of being involved with LYR. You can learn to row, or join a boat club with LYR.
