THE BOAT

WhiteRows is a Rannoch Adventure R25 pure class ocean rowing boat and the latest design in Rannoch’s long history of building world class ocean rowing boats.

She has been specially modified for a solo set up which basically means a single pair of oars, and an adapted sleeping compartment, creating a wet/dry cabin and allowing separation of the electrics and sleeping area. (On a pairs boat the rowing deck is a larger to allow for two sets of oars and this separation is not possible). The upshot is that you can seal off the sleeping matress from the elements, meaning that in theory you can get a dry (ish) sleep.

WhiteRows has been put through her paces through two days of sea trials in Burnham-on-Crouch and a week in Palma, Mallorca (see videos below) .

And in now berthed in Hartlepool Marina.
