A staple for every year, the Warwick Rowers are back again with another nude celebration. While the calendar may be a cheeky glimpse at the lads, they are always more than willing to bare all in the behind the scenes images. These were the first of many to turn to the gay community to raise funds for their student rowing club as well as charitable initiative Sport Allies which aims to fight homophobia in sports and to raise awareness and support for LGBTQ athletes.
