Equipment

Rannoch is constantly researching the best and most reliable equipment to use in ocean rowing. This has been carried out through testing on actual ocean crossings as well as finding out thoughts on equipment from others who have done the same. A key example is working closely with the world’s leading marine electronics manufacturer, Raymarine, to help develop the perfect navigational set up.

In purchasing your equipment though Rannoch, you are buying into knowledge as well as access to highly competitive prices for what you need.

The man behind Rannoch Adventure and the man who brought Locura to life. His timeless energy, jumping into RIBs at 0500 in the morning to come and check on us during training and always being at the end of a phone during this crossing. Thank you is by no means enough, we simply would not be where we are without him!

I understood we set the new pair’s speed world record for this crossing and naturally were the fastest pair in the race. As you might know, we had to start 9 days after the Great Pacific Race start and one can only speculate whether we would have beaten EVERYONE (4 person crews included) had we started together and with the same weather conditions. We did post the three fastest day distances by anyone and if you calculate speed per distance traveled; we beat all the four person crews too. Thank you and big cheers to the boat that served us so well!

Charlie, I cannot thank you enough for everything this week. Jack had an amazing time experiencing ocean rowing and getting insights and advice from a true expert. He loved getting time on the water and experiencing a true night out on his own. Thanks for all of your advice and encouragement. It was a great week and we loved Burnham and the Oyster Smack. Looking forward to working with you and Team Rannoch in the future!

Success is not a chance event. In addition to hard work it takes a great leader with vision, determination and a passion for detail and excellence. I have been fortunate enough to work with Charlie Pitcher who exemplifies the essence of great leadership which is reflected in the work of Rannoch’

Professor Greg Whyte, Olympian and World Renowned Sports Scientist, PhD DSc FACSM FBASES
Rannoch are the only company I have come across to offer solutions on all elements of preparation for an ocean row. They picked us up well in to our campaign and helped us make practically essential alterations to our Ocean Rowing Boat as well as gave us practical advice, help in our training and scrutinizing our preparations at our departure port. They were extremely professional and also loyal supporters. I would strongly recommend someone considering an ocean row should talk to them.
