WELCOME TO ROWING CLASSIFIEDS
Welcome to Rowing Classifieds – the new digital marketplace for rowers and scullers.
Rowing Classifieds provides members with a fully-featured Dashboard comprising listings management, image hosting, integrated Google maps, member profiles and secure private messaging. The internal messaging system can only be accessed by registered users and avoids the invasive spam that ensues with publicly available personal data. With a free membership structure, the low cost pay-per-ad service will be supported by offers from our selected partners alongside curated and original editorial content.
Rowing Classifieds is the digital marketplace for rowers and scullers to connect and trade with each other bringing the pre-owned rowing market up to date.
As a bonus to get you listing we are offering a Rowing Classifieds brand tee shirt when you advertise a rowing or sculling boat for sale on Rowing Classifieds. Details of the offer, including terms & conditions can be found here.
Rowing Classifieds is free to join in the Individual and Club membership categories. At present it is free to list on Rowing Classifieds to enable us to build a membership base and fine tune the system as it develops.
As an opening incentive we are offering a free Rowing Classifieds brand Tee to the first 30 people who register for a free membership and create a genuine listing complete with images. The tee shirts are available on a first come first served basis and we can not guarantee to have your size available – however we will endeavour to send your closest size.
WANT TO CONTRIBUTE?
Do you have a rowing story to tell? Well we are listening! We are interested in publishing original rowing related content that we can share with a wider audience. It can be an opinion, your training goals or racing, diet or training tips. It could event be a memory of past conquests or club histories. If practical we will try and shoot some original photography or you can submit your own images.
Drop us a line with your feature pitch and we will be in touch!
FEEDBACK, SUGGESTIONS OR JUST REACHING OUT?
The need for this site started from personal adversity – a back injury forcing the sale of my 12 month old Empacher but how to sell it? The options weren’t great – a text based bulletin-board type web service (spam), word of mouth (who you know), an ad in the back of print magazines (time) and eBay (tyre kickers). In the end my buyer came through a video I made and posted on YouTube but this was far from ideal for a sport involving so many people and such high values. And so Rowing Classifieds was born, and after the usual software splutters involving a charlatan from Seattle, a super polite but ultimately chaotic Indian from Delhi and finally a wonderful Albanian in London, this is the first iteration.
