NHHI Oktagon is the school’s women’s rowing team and has grown to become an engaged, fitness-loving, and lively group since its establishment in 2008.
We train twice a week, either on boats at Nordåsvannet or indoors using rowing machines, running, strength training, or circuit training.
At NHHI Oktagon, we don’t require any prior rowing experience. Very few of us had rowed before, so we approach boat knowledge and experience during our time at NHH.
Every spring, we participate in the annual Studentregattaen held in Bergen, where all student teams in Norway come to compete. We prepare for this event, and the entire team takes part in this fantastic day, along with the celebration and banquet in the evening.
Just as important as the training sessions are the experiences and friendships we build within the team. We have a great time together at various gatherings, such as pre-parties, Aulashow, cabin trips, breakfasts, and other activities within the team or together with Crew. We also go on surprise trips or cabin trips, where we enjoy each other’s company. It’s quite possible that the girls on the team will become some of your best friends – with us, we’re all in the same boat.
