Under Development: Omni Rowing T1X
The new OMNI Rowing T1X (Touring Class Single) is under development to combine the best features of U.S. open water rowing shells with the open transom used in all European Coastal Rowing boats. We're at the prototype stage of development with open water rowing expert Ben Booth of Dharma Voyage in Westport, MA working with us to take the Omni T1X to the next level of design and development. Extensive on-water trials in various conditions will thoroughly test the shells capability, discern exactly how the hull handles in all potential sea conditions and test various rigging specs to arrive at an actual configuration of all rowing station dimensions (seat height, oarlock height, span, footwell) to be most efficient and comfortable in the range of calm and rough water conditions expected. We're dedicated to setting a high standard for recreational and open water rowing stability and performance in a light, fast, durable, stable, self-bailing and portable shell -- taking the Omni Rowing T1X a step beyond!

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!
