Have you ever wished to Learn to Row? or pictured yourself rowing down the Thames or been inspired by the GB rowing team?

At 12 Degrees we understand that many people would love to experience the thrills of rowing on the Thames. 12 Degrees offers you the exciting chance to train at some of the UK's most prestigious rowing clubs.

Through this experience, teams get to know each other, explore strengths and weaknesses.  Achieve together and are inspired to transfer this learning into the ‘real world’ of business.

The activities will be fully managed by our Event Manager who will be on site to set up the activities well in advance of the guests arrival. 

A full briefing will be carried out at the start of the event to incorporate safety points as well as health and safety criteria.

"It was one of the best team experiences we ever had.. especially since it was a new experience for everybody."
European HR Manager, Rohde & Schwarz
