Club sponsors with trophy blade

A small update on a recent project.

The Nassau Rowing Club writes:
The blade commemorating the first international Bahamian crew represented by Nassau RC has landed! In honoring the occasion, we want to thank the partners of Holowesko Pyfrom Fletcher, our lead sponsor since the inception of the club. Thank you for believing in us, and for your continued support of rowing in The Bahamas!


RHKYC Ship Shop re-opening

The Ship Shop (chandlery) at RHKYC has just re-opened in it’s new location in the freshly built annex to the administration building.

David Ho, the manager, displays the trophy blade that will mark this occasion and also the location of the rowing items in the shop. I will have to modify this blade as we had anticipated a late April opening and it happened at the start of June!

Welcome back!

After a few years hiatus, is back.

I haven’t been idle since the old site went of line. Despite not being visible I have still continued to hand paint trophy oars (and other types of paddles, including outrigger canoe and dragon boat!), but was mostly doing it for a smaller audience closer to my home club.

Now I have moved countries for work and find myself much closer to one of the major homes of rowing – London.

I’ll be slowly sorting out this website and also getting to know the local rowing community. You can contact me about oars at any time and I would be more than happy to look at any project that you might have.
