Dear Captains,

I'm writing to let you all know of an exciting opportunity for an Easter
training camp for Cambridge college boat clubs at Lake Bled, Slovenia. Bled
is home to the Slovenian national team and features an Olympic standard
rowing centre on the shores of Lake Bled, which has a multi-lane 2km rowing
course. The 2017 World Rowing Masters Regatta was held there last year.

MBC has organised a training camp to Bled in April and have negotiated a
deal with the International Rowing Centre there, as well as accommodation a
short distance from the centre, and we can now offer this deal to other
Cambridge college clubs for the Easter vacation.

Full use of the rowing centre for 20 athletes (excluding coxes and
coaches), including boat and launch hire and use of the rowing machines and
changing facilities, would cost around €3500 for a full week. Accommodation
in a large house (for a maximum of 23 people) a short walk from the centre
would cost around £1500 for a week. This represents amazing value for money
- this camp would cost significantly less per person than the recent
University Boat Clubs camp to Banyoles.

Bled is an easy half hour road or rail journey from Slovenia Ljubljana
airport, with daily flights direct from Stansted.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this amazing opportunity,
please contact Dave Crawley (davecrawley at gmail.com), who owns the house in
Bled. If you have any questions about the camp, please feel free to ask me
or him.

Best wishes,

James Richardson
