Asked why rowing, she talked about setting goals and achieving them. In fact she added that goal setting and achievement of those goals was addictive! Charlotte also mentioned that being around good and like minded people was fun and invigorating.

Mercs? A great environment with an enjoyable social life. The community is great and you always feel welcome. It is a second family to me.

In terms of satisfying races, she liked the 2015 World Championships eight. The crew made changes which made significant improvements.
