50,000+ Pairs of Gloves Sold
We are immensely proud of how far our small business has come to reach people of all ages and backgrounds. The Crew Stop rowing gloves have been sold in all 50 states as well as more than 25 countries around the world.
Gloves for all Water Sports and Beyond
The Crew Stop, Inc. was formed out of a need for a better solution for rowers to protect their hands without compromising technique. This quickly morphed into recognizing that all water sports with a focus on the hands could use a glove to prevent blisters and promote a secure grip. Our patented design was field tested for three years, taking feedback from athletes of all ages and skill levels into account. Lightweight, minimalistic, and breathable, our gloves allow for uninterrupted training and racing in any sport.
Our Founder, Julie Baker
Julie Baker founded The Crew Stop in 2013. A world-class multitasker and problem-solver, she ran the business out of her home in Fairport, NY while excelling in her full-time engineering career, raising three daughters, and getting out on the water to fuel her passion of rowing. She was heavily involved in the rowing community and a founding member of Rochester Boat Club. Julie loved to garden, sing, dance, and help others in any way possible. She lit up our lives and will continue to do so as we remember her forever.
March 3, 1961 - January 2, 2020
