Gillian Lindsay,
GLC Founder

Gillian loves to coach on and off the water, she thrives on sharing all she knows about how to make boats go faster. During her career she has learned a lot about what worked best for her, and how to transfer that into effective rowing. Her successful coaching career has secured 40+ national and international medals including National Schools’ Regatta and National Championships. She has helped athletes race for Great Britain at the Junior World Rowing Championships and the European Championships too. She still competes, mostly at the Head of the Charles in the US (where she has won that title 6 times). She also holds the UK Concept 2 indoor rowing record for 60 mins (for her age!).



Alice, a seasoned coach with 14 years at Lady Eleanor Holles School, has led athletes to numerous national medals. She's adept at organizing and teaching rowing courses for all ages. A former Captain at Newcastle University Boat Club, Alice excelled in doubles and singles, securing national and university championships, and GB school medals. She's also a European University medalist. Off the water, she enjoys painting, yoga, and leading adventure tours globally.


Erin, originally from South Africa, has been a dedicated rower since 2013. Her passion for the sport flourished through her school and university years, leading to remarkable opportunities, including her role as President of University Rowing South Africa. Erin is committed to making rowing both enjoyable and goal-oriented, skillfully blending the joy of the sport with the dedication required to achieve personal objectives.



Gabby, a University of Bath alumni , represented England and GB in European Universities rowing. As Deputy Captain at Molesey Boat Club, she won multiple Henley Women's titles and raced at Henley Royal Regatta. With extensive coaching experience at Wimbledon High School and Molesey Boat Club, she now guides and coaches Surbiton High School - one of GB’s top rowing schools. In her spare time, Gabby is a cross fit demon, loves her coffee and turns up to every coaching session like a ray of sunshine!



Will, formerly a full-time rower at Molesey Boat Club, transitioned into coaching juniors and university students. He co-developed Wimbledon High School's rowing program with Gillian Lindsay, fostering a love for the sport with a fun approach. Will is a certified yoga teacher and a wannabe surf dude too. Currently Will leads Fulham Reach's junior rowing program, and is committed to coaching a holistic and body-aware coaching style.



Alex Watson, a Leicester native with over 10 years of rowing experience, has achievements ranging from National Schools’ Regatta championship gold medals to NCAA victories and participation in the U23/Senior GB Rowing Team. Educated in nutrition and public health at the University of Texas, Alex's coaching career is as diverse as her global living experiences. We are thrilled to have Alex working with us at GL Camps.


Luke, currently a dedicated coach at Wimbledon High School, has been passionate about rowing for over 15 years. When not coaching, he enjoys cycling, running, surfing, and resting. He started rowing at 11 with Dart Totnes ARC in Devon and progressed to the top of the national scene with Reading University, then Leander Club. Presently, Luke sweeps with Molesey BC's Henley Royal Campaign. His coaching highlight was leading a talented squad of girls through the 2022-2023 season, culminating in a WJ15 8+ gold at the National Schools’ Regatta.



Current Head Coach of University of Glasgow Chris brings fun, laughter and happiness to the water. He is the big brother we all need in our lives! Rowing brought Chris to London, away from his Scottish roots for several years. During that time, Chris trialled for the GB Olympic Team, won Henley Royal Regatta and eventually decided to embark upon a coaching career. The sport of rowing is lucky to have him help, encourage and nurture on and off the water.

Her development in confidence, resilience, and teamwork, coupled with medal successes, has been a joy to witness.
