Never before has set-up and go been so simple. Toss it on the car racks and go. Go anywhere. No longer are you restricted to marked courses and motored escorts. This rocket ship will take on the heartiest open water at midday, and clock in at mach one in the calm backwaters
A great feature of this carbon shell is it’s carry weight: 14 kg!. Simply turn 3 knobs and the rigger is off. At 6.2 m you can car top it everywhere and when you see an inviting seascape, snap on the rigger and fly.
The Regatta comes standard in carbon fiber hull and deck, the lightest, toughest way a shell can be made. Lightweight is not just for racing – a light shell is much easier to carry, turns and responds better, and lasts longer. Even so, the Regatta is 2-3 pounds heavier than some other brands. Why? In the non-racing world, we want to be the toughest, & longest lasting
Perfect for race training- Lean and mean. I mean slippery fast. Like rowing on ice. Cover miles in twenty minutes.
Any good open water shell must be relatively stable to handle the wakes tossing you to and fro. The Regatta has an exclusive flared hull design that has a two-fold benefit: the waterline is narrow (by open water standards) so that in calm water she’ll behave more like an advanced flat water design.
Above the waterline the hull flares out- get into choppy waters and this flair yields reserve stability when needed. Calm water fast, choppy water stable. To add even more stability, the seat deck is the lowest available. The Regatta is the driest flat deck boat on the market due to its deep hull. The optional splash guard can really enhance this shell’s versatility, it comes standard with a through hull self bailer, a must for open water sculling (photo 6). Made in the USA.
