“The future growth of rowing, the next expansion is … coastal rowing.” – US Rowing CEO Glenn Merry

Coastal or open water rowing is one of the fastest growing lifestyle sports in the USA today. Firmly established in Europe, the interest in competition and recreational rowing along our abundant shorelines is growing with US Rowing's recently sanctioned Coastal Rowing Initiative. That support means coastal rowing events – races and gatherings – will begin this year from beaches right into the surf and along the coast. This type of racing is part of the challenge and fun of coastal rowing. As competition and interest grows, the USA-built Omni TX1 and future Omni Coastal Rowing shells are poised to be a part of more regional and national competitions. The new OMNI T1X delivers a next-generation competitive touring class training and racing shell as well as an excellent trainer for developmental and recreational scullers.  Coastal Rowing is a lifestyle sport enjoyed by the widest range of recreational to competitive, novice to expert rowers. Be a part of the exciting, dynamic, evolving sport of coastal rowing! From coaching to the best boats, we'll show you the way! Contact us today!

I own both an Echo and an Alden 16.  I live on a bay in New Hampshire so the water conditions can vary from being calm to being very choppy and windy. I prefer the Echo in both cases; it's more responsive in calm waters, and I believe every bit as stable in all conditions. I taught several friends to row this past summer. I am talking about people who have never set foot in a sliding seat shell before. They had greater success in the Echo.

 “You meet and make great friends with an Echo! Welcome to a class of scullers that are out for the exercise, solitude, communing with nature, and just plain fun. There are no high-brow elitists in this group. Can we be competitive if we want to race? Of course. but it’s all done for fun, not just for trophies and bragging rights. It is, indeed, great fun with great friends!"
-Don E., CA

What a great day...Thanks to the Echo Ace Racer, I place and win races that I wouldn't otherwise! Thanks for making that happen.
