Small fittings, big impact. AeRowFin will do wonders for your boat’s steering and stability and all for less than the cost of a single new oar
A UNIQUE FOIL SYSTEM FOR ROWING SHELLS
AeRowFin combines the traditional fin/rudder system into a single, integrated, hydro–dynamically designed device which truly empowers the cox and speeds the crew. Not only does it provide much more precise and immediate steering, it also helps to stabilise the boat through hydrodynamic effect.
The product of intensive research and development, AeRowFin was designed by Carl Douglas for the 2000 GB eight which then so splendidly won
It has also been used successfully by both universities in the Boat Race and by many other crews including Henley winners.
AeRowFin is precision machined in Aluminium and anodised. Available for most rowing boat makes and all sizes.
For the technically minded,
here is a document explaining why AeRowFin works

- SMALL FIN, BIG DIFFERENCE
The Canard fin is a small foil fitted towards the bows (see our
for precise details)Only suitable for shells fitted with AeRowFin, it holds the bows on course, prevents leeway, reduces drag, enhances balance, improves speed and gives almost perfect shell control. We call this twin foil system HyperSteer.
= THE ULTIMATE IN SHELL CONTROL
This simple video demonstrates how
affects shell control
This combined foil system massively reduces leeway drag making the boat even more responsive, faster and more stable. It was described by one of the crew in the winning Saratoga Junior Ladies Eight at the Head of the Charles, as going around the notorious Weeks bend “like we were in a video game”
