Newsletter Edition:
Spring Break 2010

Issue for Spring | September  2010 |

Welcome to the Rowbust Spring newsletter - for those in the Southern Hemisphere we hope the weather is starting to warm up and those boats that have been hibernating are ready to roll. 

There are a range of things we wanted to let you know about and plan to bring you our VIS interviews starting soon.
Rowbust Head of the Yarra 2010
We are delighted to announce that Rowbust will be sponsoring the 2010 Head of the Yarra at the Hawthorn Rowing Club.  After a very succcessful association with the event, Rowbust will be working with the organisers towards another sensational event. 

With more than 200 crews participating, this is a unique and world class event.  More information can be found at

Event merchandise will be available on the course and our website from later September.

New Products
Given the increasing awareness at all levels of rowing about the damage prolonged exposure to the sun can do, Rowbust have developed a set of tops designed to minimise the sun exposure.  Both are available today from our website with special rates and designs available for school groups.

Our Values
We recently stepped away from the business to undertake some planning and structure for 2011.  It was an opportunity to consider the Rowbust values and test these.  We decided on reinforcing:
  • Outstanding Quality
  • Remarkable Service
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Innovative Design
  • Positive Associations
Your feedback on these is always welcome.

James Tomkins Retires
James Tomkins (the rower not the Soccer player) announced his retirement in August from competitive rowing.  We dont have enough bandwidth available to pay appropriate homage, but he has few peers in the history of rowing and Australian sport.  A 3-time Olympic gold medalist, World Champion, Commonwealth Games Gold medal and Kings Cup winner, Tomkins literally and figuratively is a giant of rowing (and if that resume didnt make the rest of us feel inadequate, he was also Victorian Father of the Year in 2008 !).  On behalf of Rowbust, we wish James every success in retirement.
