Sara Parfett profile image

World Class Start rower and former competitive swimmer, Sara made her debut with the GB Rowing Team senior squad in 2017.

She took up the sport whilst studying at Bath University, and was invited to join British Rowing’s World Class Start programme in 2012.

In 2014 Sara was selected to represent England at the Home International Regatta in Cork; she raced in the women’s four and eight alongside fellow World Class Start rower Beth Bryan.

Sara was part of the Imperial College BC eight that finished second at WeHORR in 2016, and the University of London eight that placed an impressive fourth at the same event in 2017.

In the summer of 2017, Parfett was in the eight for the European Rowing Championships and went on to win World Cup silver and bronze in the same boat in Poznan and Lucerne respectively. She was named a spare for the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton.
