Rowperfect Oar Carrier – a new kid on the dock

All goes back to my experience at on of the Rowing World Cups.

I saw this big mess of oars. At the dock, at the boats, in the dirty grass. They were everywhere. Seams like all nations treat their oars the same way. The only exception: the Aussies. They had their oars well placed, perfectly placed in Oar Carriers.

Oargo Fun – This is how to carry oars

I guess you know this feeling: Carrying more than 4 oars in your hands or shoulder and bringing them to the dock. The Australians did it different: Their oars were in the boathouse, neatly stored and loaded on an oar carrier. So I tried to look for this “thing”. I wanted one for (me) my club. And I found it. The Rowperfect Oar Carrier:  “OarGo”. Made in Australia, invented by a world-class rower: Brooke Donoghue.

How does the “OarGo” work?

Each Oar Carrier can carry four sweep oars or two pairs of sculls so that they are balanced for carrying and protected when being moved. So a single coxswain can carry all 8 oars for a quad or eight. It offers ergonomic carrying support. And so easy to carry.

looks great – Rower carries 8 oars

To use the OarGo Oar Carrier you simply put 4 sweep or 4 scull oars in the slots and pick it up carrying the OarGo by your side. It is designed to be used when moving oars to and from the pontoon and for storage off the ground. This reduces the chance of oars being damaged whilst carrying them. And also makes them easier to carry – we all know how hard and awkward it can be! Oars cost thousands of dollars, so we see this as a cost effective way to protect your oars and increase their lifespan – and save some money in the long run.

The OarGo is designed as flat packs for easy transportation and storage. It fits easily in every trailer, even fits in your van. The OarGo is made from PVC meaning it it fully waterproof. Have a look at this great product in our Shop
