EQUIPMENT SPONSORSHIP

OUR ROWERS COMPETE AGAINST THE BEST TEAMS IN THE NATION USING TOP-TIER EQUIPMENT, INCLUDING RACING SHELLS FROM POCOCK, EMPACHER AND FILIPPI. WHITE ROCK ROWING WORKS HARD TO MAINTAIN OUR FLEET OF BOATS, BUT ALL BOATS MUST BE REPLACED EVENTUALLY. IN ADDITION, MORE BOATS OF ALL SIZES WILL BE NEEDED AS OUR MEMBERSHIP EXPANDS. OUR PROGRAM RELIES ON GENEROUS DONORS WHO ARE WILLING TO SUPPORT THE PROGRAM'S GROWING FLEET.

PLEASE CONTACT US AT INFO@WHITEROCKROWING.ORG TO SPONSOR A NEW BOAT FOR OUR FLEET.

BOAT NAMING RIGHTS

ROWING IS NOTHING IF NOT FULL OF TRADITION, AND THAT TRADITION EXTENDS TO THE RITUAL OF GIVING EACH BOAT A NAME. SHIPS WERE ORIGINALLY GIVEN NAMES FOR PURELY LOGISTICAL REASONS - PASSENGERS AND CREW NEEDED TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME VOYAGE. TODAY, BOAT NAMES ARE LESS ABOUT LOGISTICS AND MORE ABOUT DESCRIBING THE OWNER OR A BOAT'S ORIGIN, OR HONORING SOMEONE FROM THE PAST.

 

MANY OF WHITE ROCK ROWING’S SHELLS CONTINUE THESE TRADITIONS, BEARING THE NAMES OF SPECIAL FAMILY MEMBERS OF THOSE THAT PROVIDED THE FUNDS TO ALLOW US TO ACQUIRE THE BOAT. IN OTHER CASES, A GENEROUS FINANCIAL DONATION TO WHITE ROCK ROWING PURCHASED THE NAMING RIGHTS FOR A SHELL. IN EVERY CASE, WE ARE EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR THE SUPPORT. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN NAMING ONE OF OUR BOATS, PLEASE CONTACT US AT INFO@WHITEROCKROWING.ORG
