Charlie Pitcher made history to become the first solo competitor to win a multi class ocean rowing race, at the same time smashing the solo record on 26th February 2010
“I was using Xcell X3s from their specialist Ocean Rowing range, which were matched to my physique and rowing style. The oars are extremely well designed and gave me that little extra edge throughout. Although I carried a spare set of oars, just in case, they were surplus and I cannot thank the team at Xcell enough for all their support and help in the build up to the Atlantic Race. As a single-handed rower, it was quite daunting and I was absolutely delighted to get line honours, ahead of the crewed teams. Thanks Xcell.” Charlie Pitcher, winner Atlantic Rowing Race 2009/10.
