Spring Intensive 2020

Herdade da Cortesia & Avizaqcua Team Center

Avis, Portugal



Our intensive in Avis, Portugal will run five days, with nine water sessions, and a nightly motivational talk led by our team. To make sure that you have an ideal setting to grow and develop we work in small groups, with a maximum of 10 athletes per intensive. Each water session will give you the opportunity to row where the top teams in the world train. The hotel's restaurant embraces local, organic food tailored to the nutritional needs of rowers, including special dietary needs. The Avizacqua Team Center is located less than two hours from Lisbon.
