Newsletter Edition:
Head of the Yarra Newsletter 2009
Dear {tag_recipientfirstname},

Rowbust is the official sponsor of the 2009 Head of the Yarra.  We are really pleased to be working with the Hawthorn Rowing Club on this fantastic event.  The Head of the Yarra is run from the Hawthorn Rowing sheds and has been on the regatta calendar for more than 50 years.  More than 200 crews are expected to compete on the 28th of November with many training on the Yarra over the past few glorious weeks.

Rowbust has developed a special event zootie and singlet which, with a sneak preview, look fantastic.  Not your usual event merchandise !!   Also, the first 50 guests on the morning will receive a mystery gift….  Good luck to everyone competing!   More information can be found at

Win a Zootie Winner

Our competition closed last week with our winner of a free zootie going to Pip Lewis.  Pip advised that she ‘never wins anything’, so it was fantastic to find such a worthy winner.   Our minor prize winners were Dave DeLang and Regina Kennedy.

Thanks to everyone who entered and for the great feedback on what you valued and thoughts on Rowbust.

We will be running a new contest shortly where we are calling for all those bad zootie photos you might have.  Too tight, short, bad angles or colours – we’ll post a selection on our site.  Simply mail any candidates you might have to


Christmas Closure

Our factory will be shutting down on the 22nd of December for a well deserved break.  We will be re-opening on the 18th of January and looking forward to a really busy season !

A key push early in the New Year is preparation for the Australian Championships to be held in Nagambie.  Rowbust will be preparing competitors to look their best when on the water, as well as having a booth on the course selling all our gear.  Get your orders in early to be guaranteed delivery in time.


Our Contact Details

We can be reached via email at, or our office number is (03) 9397 4855 which is operated from 8.30 to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.  Queries and feedback can also be submitted through the website at

See you at the Head of the Yarra.
Best wishes from the Rowbust Team.

Cadbury takes home the Chocolates

Cadbury recently put together a team to compete in the 2009 Alcoa Corporate Cup regatta (Rowbust assisted with the design of the famous ‘glass and a half’ dairy milk zooties).  The team of rowers were of all shapes & sizes and united under the Cadbury purple.  Given the enjoyment and team building achieved, Cadbury’s team will be back next year for this most delicious event !


Club Login

A reminder to all clubs & schools that our new club portal is up & running and available for your use.  It offers a centralised portal where members can order directly without needing the club to organise. 

Several clubs have already benefitted from signing up and Rowbust has been able to craft a kit exclusively for their members.  Members can benefit from both pricing and timing improvements.
