Rowcave Ambassador Will Satch introduces Rowcave at the Head of the Charles

Rowcave is proud to have launched at Head of the Charles 2022. For the event, Rowcave has created the Charles River course, replicating boat houses, foliage, apartment buildings and more.

In partnership with RP3 Rowing, Rowcave provided a warm-up station for athletes competing across the weekend, giving them the best possible preparation for their races on the water.

We were joined by elite teams such as Leander Club, the US National Team and many more who went on to have great success at their respective events.

We also opened the the stand to other event goers, allowing them to race for the best time in teams of up to eight.

A Studio Built for Rowers
Rowcave is a bespoke, immersive, and performance-enhancing rowing studio which simulates real world conditions to extract the very best from athletes.

Through stunning wrap-around visuals, the most advanced rowing machines, and the latest in extended reality technologies, Rowcave is an evolutionary leap forward in indoor training. Rowcave has no limitations. Athletes can race, train, and practice any day, any time, whatever the conditions.

This is the future of rowing.

With Rowcave, athletes experience the world as they would on the water. Meticulously re-created courses, combined with ultra-sharp LED screens, extend reality and immerse athletes in another world. With minimal latency, the speed of the boat responds instantly to any change in rower output.

Visualisation and course experience are key to delivering results on race day. Rowcave fills your entire peripheral vision, allowing athletes to see their opponents at the start line, take in the details of the surroundings along the course, and feel the crowds’ energy at the finish line, as if they were really there.

This immersion pushes athletes to optimum levels of performance.
