Tasmania all set for rowing season
We’ve just returned from a trip to Tasmania to unload a container of new Burton rowing shells. The weather was magnificent and our owners excited by their new boats. Watch this space for updates on their performance and also testimonials from Burton owners.
Have you entered our Facebook competition to be in the running to win a pair of full carbon rowing sculling oars (worth over $700).
Yarrra Yarra have added to their Burton fleet taking delivery of a brand new quad/four. We had a great time delivering the boat with a lovely dinner at Melbourne’s Southbank and a wander around the groovy laneway district. It’s not all work at Burton!
After a mammoth fundraising effort, the rowers at NUBC have finally got their new Burton. Ron did a quick rigger fitting and the guys took it straight out on the water. Taree Regatta was it’s first outing.

Burton Tasmanian agent was a competitive rower of note in Queensland before his weight of 150 kilos prevented him from participating in the sport he so passionately loves. The Burton EasyRider double was up to the job so for the first time Geoff was able to row with his son Jared (a promising schoolboy rowing for University Team under the coaching of Mark Mathis). How great that this boat design makes it possible for everyone to have a great rowing experience – from a lightwieght 12 year old to a 50 year old who thought his days of rowing were behind him . Geoff is well known in Tasmania for the many hours he puts in assisting school rowing programs and tells us he is so inspired he has lost 12 kilos! Good on you Geoff.
