Dear Rowperfect community
Lots of new things to tell you about – proof that our ‘radio silence’ just concealed frantic paddling below the water –a cygnet turning into a fine swan!
First to announce is that we have guest bloggers who will help bring you ‘inside track’ news and information in the lead up to Beijing. Jen Goldsack is a Brit now sculling for the USA in the Women’s Lwt 2x and Duncan Holland, international coach who has written his first post about the results from Luzern World Cup . Please contribute to the discussion by writing comments back to them on the news blog under each article.
New products this month include an innovative scull and oar hanging rack the “Space Saver” – available for the first time in the UK. It enables you to hang 8 pairs of sculls or 8 oars in a space the width of an oar spoon and 1 meter deep. We are taking early orders for this now. And a rear-view mirror for coxless boats from the creative folk at Coxmate.
New Dreher owners include members at Cambridge 99, Upper Thames, Wadham College Oxford, Portsmouth RC and Oundle Town RC. We have a set of 8 Sweep Apex ex demonstration oars for sale. And we’ve just dropped the price of Stampfli gripsNewsletter 21 June 08 to £12 per pair. Buy online here.
Magik have redesigned their oarlock and we have a review posted by James Beechinor of Bedford RC who raced successfully at National Schools Regatta and he says the gates helped him to overcome the rough conditions. And one from Burton Leander Captain, Rob Jephcote
Thank you and happy rowing!
Grant Craies and Rebecca Caroe
