    Last year we had a number of people interested our Braca Oars for the GB Row Challenge. These oars are custom made to your specifications, and the enquiries came too late for us to get them manufactured in time.

    Nick Dennison and Hamish Reid used Braca Sculls to get the record time around GB in a Double.

    If you are considering this event, you should be considering Braca Sculls, so please make sure you order in plenty of time. We need about 12 weeks for these custom blades to be made.
