Sykes has a proud history of manufacturing and a proud place in the Australian rowing community. Since their first rowing gold medal in the 1974 World Championships, Sykes boats and designs have been the choice of many of today’s Rowing Teams.
From the very beginning, Team Resolute has been driven by one simple yet never-ending mission: Making the best racing shells in the world, suitable for Novice through Elite Rowers. Resolute was and is the “One.”
Conceived in 2012 and founded in 2013, Finish Line Rowing was founded on the idea of being something more than just boat repairs. Alex Del Sordo, Finish Line’s founder, believed that rowers needed a repair shop that was run by people still actively involved in the sport.
