The Vogalonga is not a competitive race and there are no winners. All participants are issued a diploma of participation. It’s all about being there! And Oar Board® is taking their innovative inflatable paddle boards and rowing equipment with them as checked luggage on the plane!

Whitehall Rowing and Sail Co-Owner Harold Aune, Oar Board® Sales Manager Diana Lesieur, along with Sarah Thornber and Mike Garnett, will row two Double Oar Board® 16 foot Adventure Stand Up Paddle Board Combos in this historic sporting event; the Vogalona Regatta is a colourful, enjoyable ride for participants and spectators from around the world.
