In rowing, the boat moves fastest when everyone pulls together: The blades enter into the water in unison propelling the boat towards the finish line. The boat responds best when athletes all “pull their weight” both figuratively and literally.

These teams, clubs and programs are encouraging new and diverse athletes by increasing opportunities in rowing. “Pulling Together” funding provides equipment to improve accessibility.

When Pete and Dick Dreissigacker first started playing with oar designs in 1976, they were two rowers who were also engineers and they couldn’t resist the challenge of making a faster oar.

Rowing races can be won or lost by fractions of a second so every little bit of speed is worth gathering. Continue Reading ›
