How to keep your rowing oars safe and accessible
Scull and sweep oars for rowing aren’t the most delicate pieces of equipment but if treated badly they can deteriorate fast. The more your oars are damaged, the less functional they become for your rowing club.

In a word, storage. The way you store and move your rowing equipment reflects how quickly that equipment could deteriorate. Storing oars in a bundle on the floor of your rowing shed puts them in danger of being chipped, stood on, fallen over and makes it difficult to find matching oars when they’re all in a pile.
Then how can I protect my rowing oars!?
Simple – use vertical storage that lifts your oars off the ground and keeps them bundled neatly together in sets.
