Regatta Service Policies and Practices

  • The purpose of regatta service is to replace wearing parts on oars (grips, sleeves) and repair, where possible, damage related to typical use.
  • Work is done first-come, first-served, no reservations.
  • Parts and labor are free of charge.
  • Oars being used for racing are given priority.
  • Oar shafts broken in half are not repairable and will not be replaced at a regatta unless prior arrangements have been made with Concept2.
  • Please bring 1 set (4pr or 5pr) of sweeps and/or 5pr sculls MAX. If we are able to accept more, we will let you know at check-in.
  • Oars must be picked up by the end of racing. Customers should check back throughout the event to see if the work is done. Concept2 is not liable for oars that are not picked up, lost or stolen.
  • Certain work, such as blade and handle replacement, is deemed to be an “upgrade” rather than a standard repair. Upgrade parts must be purchased and shipped to the customer prior to the event and brought with the oars for free installation.
  • Because of space limitations, Concept2 is unable to bring new oars to regattas.
  • Concept2 rents oars and sculls for the following events only:
    • Head Of The Charles Regatta®. Contact (800.245.5676) by September 29.
    • Henley Royal Regatta Oar Rentals: Contact (+447772 057 910) for Henley Women's Regatta and Henley Royal Regatta.
    • World Rowing Coastal Championships and World Rowing Beach Sprints finals. Contact (+44 115 9340140).
  • Concept2 repairs oars for the lifetime of the oars, regardless of the oar purchase date and regardless of transfer of ownership. Oars will not be worked on only if they are deemed “unrowable" upon inspection by a Concept2 Oar technician.
