SUPPORTING DIVERSITY, EQUALITY AND INCLUSION IN ROWING
The sport of rowing has a diversity problem, but there are programmes around the globe that are working to change that. As the largest rowing shell manufacturer in the world we want to do our best to help them.
That’s why we have partnered with American clothing brand and design lab Rowing Blazers to design a limited edition single that gives back. Only 250 will be built and sold worldwide and for every boat sold, we’ll be donating a boat to a rowing programme focussing on DEI initiatives. That’s up to 250 free boats to help grow our sport the right way.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Limited Edition Racing Single
The limited edition racing shell features WinTech’s industry leading full high-modulus unidirectional carbon construction and rigger, hand painted Rowing Blazers signature stripe on the deck, a custom interior and comes with Rowing Blazers oars, branded boat cover and Rowing Blazers Rugby.
The Donated Learn To Row Single
For each boat sold we’ll donate one of our Explorer 21 or 24 boats to a pre-approved club or organisation focusing on diversity, equality & inclusion. This stable and durable hull is the perfect way to safely develop the skills needed for both competitive and recreational enjoyment as well as adaptive athlete.

Two For The Price of One
Unparalleled quality, value and performance is what we are all about here at WinTech Racing so much so that for a similar price to our competition you can not only buy a shell of equivalent or superior construction to our competitors for yourself but for a similar price donate one too.
RECIPIENTS OF THE DONATED BOATS
Recipients for the donated WinTech Explorer Learn-to-Row boats can be chosen at the time of purchase from a list of pre-approved rowing clubs, organisations and charities with strong diversity and inclusion initiatives. As part of your purchase you will be helping make rowing accessible to more people from all backgrounds.
GROWING OUR SPORT THE RIGHT WAY
Like many, the rowing community has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. We are proud of our collaboration with Rowing Blazers and hope that together with your help we can donate up to $1.4 million worth of boats to help not only help to grow our sport but also to do it the right way to make rowing accessible to all.
