We admire those who test the limits of human endurance. Rowing is hard under normal circumstances. When combined with causes that serve to bring exposure to environmental issues, we often support them.

The threats and opportunities in the Zambezi River Basin can be dealt with through a combination of energy and passion, plus insight from data and research. That is why TheCrewStop has chosen to sponsor RowZambezi, comprised of an international rowing team, World Rowing, WWF and Village Water to raise money for a world class water research and rowing centre on the Kafue River itself – the Kafue River and Rowing Centre.

Join us – you can support them too.

"When the gloves were not on someone's hands, we hung them up on the shoulder-height jackstays to keep them handy and let them dry. The gloves proved to be an exceptionally valuable tool and kept each of our hands protected while allowing them to naturally grow callouses for further protection."

"I have raced every year since I began in 1971. As I've gotten older and mixed sweep and sculling as well as ocean racing, I began experimenting with all sorts of gloves. Research is over! What I like most about TheCrewStop Gloves is their extremely low profile. They are light and cool – protect my hands – and provide an excellent grip in both sweaty and cold rainy/dry conditions."

– Ann Jonik, 1976 Olympian and lifelong member, Vesper Boat Club

Focus on Your Technique.

The hand is an integral player in how well we row. Why let the distraction of an injury impact an essential component of rowing?
