Sykes Racing

Sykes Racing is a world renowned Australian manufacturer of rowing boats and associated equipment. Sykes boats are designed and manufactured entirely in Australia with a 40+ year history of innovative and successful hull designs.

Recognised around the world as one of the very few companies that successfully made the transition from traditional timber hulls to today’s high tech composite boats. The quality and experience of our formative years is evident to all that row our latest designs.

Innovation was the foundation of the company and today Sykes Racing works closely with coaches, athletes and National Teams as well as a unique collaborative team of outside specialists to develop the winning designs which are evident in our latest developments. Our design partners bring further experience and modern technology to test and enhance already successful designs and well as create new ones.

Sykes Racing is proud to be sponsoring Rowing Australia and the Under 23 and Junior Australian Rowing Teams. These teams will compete in a fleet of thirteen Sykes boats whilst overseas training and competing over the next four years . This will heavily reduce the expense of competition tours for these developing athletes.

Sykes Racing is committed to supporting the Australian Rowing community. This initiative adds to ongoing national initiatives such as the NTID Breaking the Drought program. In this program, a Sykes Honeycomb Carbon Single Scull is awarded to the school of the winning School Boy and School Girl Champion Single Sculler at the Australian National Rowing Championships. The increase in participation in these events during the past few years has been very encouraging and some of the successful athletes have already advanced into National Teams at Junior level.

For over 40 years, Sykes Racing have been partnering champions with enviable results. It is the unending pursuit of excellence that separates Sykes from the rest of the field.
