She said: "The criticism we received last year just spurred us on to do it again as we were given so much positive feedback all in all.
"This year we shot the calendar over two days in June - the weather was a bit windy which played havoc with the girl's hair.The students from the University of Warwick Rowing Society caused controversy last year after their calendar was branded "tacky" and "sexist".But, undeterred, the women have ditched their life jackets to once again strip off for a new 2014 version of their controversial calendar.The phenomenon started four years ago with the Warwick Rowing men's squad.Then, the following year, the Warwick women's team joined the fray.A six-time World Champion, he won gold medals at five Olympic Games and has been loosely crowned Athlete of the Century because of the extreme physical demands of rowing.His female counterpart on the gold medal count is Elisabeta Lipa of Romania, who also won five Olympic gold medals between 19.Now, Newcastle University's men and women are back on the naked calendar train.So, the question is, have rowing and naked calendars become a thing?"We had to hold towels around the girls too because we kept giving the passing fishermen an eyeful. "We also travelled to Spain to do a bonus shoot and those can be purchased as well as the calendar."It was a bit easier stripping naked out there as the weather was much nicer." The calendar, which raised £600 for Macmillan Cancer Support last year, already has 300 pre-orders from across the USA.
