The ORS Int. is the official adjudicator of ocean rowing records for Guinness World Records




Papa Delta is a pair at present with 2 rowing positions in place but she would make a fine single as well. Made from foam core fibreglass she is light weight, stiff and fast. She has reliably crossed the Atlantic twice now since her manufacture in 2010, most recently in the 2015 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge event. Since then she has been thoroughly cleaned and the inside of the cabin repainted. She also comes with a vast inventory of spares, equipment and accessories (full inventory below) making her nearly ready to enter the next race already. There is currently a footsteer system in place which performed flawlessly in the last crossing but there is room to upgrade to an autohelm if desired. The required number of oars are present aboard the boat (6 for pairs setup) and these are all matching, black, full carbon shafts with makon spoons - incredibly lightweight and easy to row with.
