To help you prepare for the event, Olympian Eric Murray, has created a series of  videos to improve your training
and mindset for competition.

sign up for the Virtual Championships and be a proud member of Team asensei!

Four time Olympian Eric Murray talks you through what you need to do in advance of the British Rowing Virtual Championships (BRVC), including setting up your equipment.  

As they say, 'fail to prepare and you prepare to fail,' so what you do leading up to the BRVC's is just as important as what you do on the day.  Often, for beginners and experienced racers, setting up your computer and rowing machine to the race software is the most challenging part. 

It's important to read through the event page in advance and familiarise yourself with the equipment required and the race protocol and do a test run to troubleshoot any possible issues. Do the most to reduce your stress on the day and go into your race with a clear head and no worries about faulty connections. 


  • Your rowing machine has the latest firmware (for info on how to check and update your firmware, check our guide here). This is not something you want to doing on the morning. 
  • You have a USB (A to B) cable that connects your machine to your computer. 
  • Chrome installed on your computer.  You may have to adjust your settings to allow the race software to work. 
  • A stable internet connection or ethernet cable. Ask your friends/family to stay of the wifi whilst you're racing (hopefully they're beside you cheering you on). 
  • Do a test run with the Homerace system, you can do that here
