Aug 29, 2014
At races throughout the year, Concept2 CTS provides free Regatta Service for competitors’ oars and sculls. We’re often surprised at the amazingly good condition of older equipment that we see from caring coaches and rowers. Unfortunately, we’re equally astonished at how quickly newer equipment can be damaged by carelessness. As the fall season approaches, here are 10 tips to help make your oars and sculls last: Continue Reading ›

Get Your Feet Wet!

Jun 03, 2014

Picture this: You’re gliding across a smooth lake listening to the rhythmic splash, splash of your oars as they catch and release the water. With every stroke your boat is propelled forward, slicing through the water in a powerful, yet graceful dance of body and boat. This could be you! Continue Reading ›

The indoor rower offers a terrific workout that doesn’t require a lake or good weather—and there’s no danger of getting wet, other than with sweat! But rowing on the water is an experience worth trying.

Here are a few ways to get yourself off your rowing machine and into a rowing shell. Continue Reading ›

Bob Beeman presenting the Pitch Check
Concept2 recently attended the Rowing Canada Conference in London, Ontario, where the topic of subzero temperatures was as much a part of the daily conversation as rowing.

Winter Oar Chores

Jan 17, 2014

It's hard to believe that the fall racing season is over and that most teams are gearing up for another exciting spring sprint season. College teams are getting together for preseason training, and those in the colder climates are most likely heading south to find rowable water and warmer temperatures. Winter camps for Masters are also popular as rowers of all ages, and abilities gear up for the coming season.

Regardless of whether or not you are a college team with several sets of sweep oars, or a single sculler with only one pair of blades, this is the time of year you can do some general maintenance on your oars to make sure they are in proper working order for spring. You will be ready for that first sunny gorgeous day of rowing! Continue Reading ›

Rowing on Big Hosmer Pond
Up here in northern Vermont, it isn’t often that we have a regatta in our backyard. In fact, there aren’t even many opportunities to learn to row, or to row on a regular basis. But in the last few years, the Craftsbury Outdoor Center (COC) has been offering “Community Rowing” twice a week throughout the summer and into September on Big Hosmer Pond, in Craftsbury, Vermont. Several Concept2 employees have taken advantage of this opportunity. Continue Reading ›

World Championships Re-Cap, Chungju, Korea

Sep 13, 2013
Eric Murray and Hamish Bond's (New Zealand) record-breaking 16th consecutive gold medal

Another World Championships has come and gone, and there is no doubt athletes and attendees will look back at this as one of best rowing events held this past year. Upon arrival at the course, you can’t help but notice the newness of the venue, which was completed in 2012. Early in the week, the final touches were being installed to fully prepare the grounds for the World Championships (I even watched a crew lay the final pavers in the walkway connecting the main building to the brand new boat bays).
