Two-time World Champion Erin Kennedy (née Wysocki-Jones) brings a wealth of high level coxing experience to the senior squad.

Cox of the victorious Oxford women’s blue boat in 2014, Erin joined Leander Club in Henley-on-Thames to continue coxing after her studies.

March 2017 saw her steer a women’s eight of returning Olympians to victory at the Women’s Eights Head of the River Race. She then coxed GB’s women’s eight to fourth at the European Rowing Championships in Racice.

Beyond the Boat

A natural performer, Erin spent much of her free time at school acting, singing and performing, “dreaming of being in the West End”. During fresher’s week at university she tried out rowing and was immediately hooked -“I have swapped one type of performance for another!”

Erin is a keen baker, so unsurprisingly Mary Berry would be invited to her dream dinner party, along with Elizabeth I and Barack Obama. Listening to familiar pop music keeps her focused before racing, but Ed Sheeran and Adele help her to relax.
