What an amazing summer!

Here at Whitehall, we have had an extraordinary summer as greater numbers of people, more than ever, have purchased Whitehall Spirit® boats and Oar Boards® and expressed their thanks about being able to get out on the water in fresh clean air, revisiting their stress-free-selves while getting some needed exercise. All of us at Whitehall are happy, healthy, and feeling fine, as we continue to fill your orders to help keep you rowing.

    We are finding the whole experience a ton of fun!

    We have contemplated getting an Oar Board and SUP for some time, but COVID-19 provided the push in 2020. My husband and I decided this was the year to step back and work on rowing basics, plus do something different with our rowing, which is what this setup has done.  First, we can pack them up and take them anywhere the pickup can go. You will not get the run of a racing single -- so get over that right away. However, what is interesting is the riggers are attached to the footstretchers and the seat is stationary. This gets [...]

Why the Oar Board® Rows So Well

On a sliding seat, the rower’s full body weight moving back and forth on the tracks causes a boat to slow down on the glide or recovery part of the row stroke. This does not occur with the Oar Board® with its fixed seat and sliding rigger. Maintaining steady trim as the hull passes through the complete duration of the row stroke is also what makes it possible to smoothly row with the much shorter paddle board type of hull.

The History of the
Oar Board®

The sliding rigger rowing system is not a recent invention. An early patent was filed for a similar rowing unit way back in 1905 however the German Olympic rowing challenge of 1985 saw a revival of the technology. Thorough development and testing was conducted by the German Olympic challenger team.

When it was found that the sliding rigger system was substantially faster when used on a racing shell, the Olympic governing body banned the German sliding rigger technology from being used in the 1988 Olympic challenge on the grounds of an unfair speed advantage. Sliding rigger rowing systems disappeared from the rowing scene until now, with the development of the Oar Board®.
