Hi, I'm Amir, I'm one of the rowers (now on my second calendar!) and I want to welcome you all to our brand new forum on behalf of everyone at Warwick Rowers.
Spending time naked together had created a bond between all of us that we find hard to explain, but which is common to pretty much every rower who has ever taken part in the calendar.
We feel more connected to each other, at a level of intimacy that is physical without necessarily being sexual. It has created a sense of freedom within each of as well as between us, and it took the calendar to get us there.
We want to break down barriers, both in sport and in society as a whole. We have seen how removing the barrier of clothes has brought us closer together as friends and as a team, and we hope that we can make a difference by communicating our experience through our calendars, our books and our new film and image subscriptions.We hope you will join us in a productive conversation about how we can all work together for change - and have fun while we’re doing it!
