7Seas rowing club


Racing with this team was the best thing I’ve experienced in my rowing life. We had a beautiful time racing together and I felt like I knew the guys for years. It was like a family!

It was amazing, overwhelming, & a once-in-a-lifetime experience to find a crew like this who fits perfectly together in and out of the boat and in just three days!

Who We Are

The 7Seas Rowing Club is a circulating team of the world's top-level club rowers, national and world champions, Olympians, and Olympic-hopefuls. The purely-passion project started with the goal to create a All-Star Team for one race, but quickly grew to two for the very first race: Holland Beker in Amstelveen. The goal is to create fast lineups of competitors from multiple countries that typically race AGAINST each other and bring them together to race as one team without borders at some of the world's most fun and prestigious races. Although boatspeed is a major factor in our lineups, FUN is the most important. This is a unique opportunity to race with guys from every corner of the world!

One of the most memorable parts of the trip (rowing wise) was how the whole crew, everyone being from different countries with different rowing styles & ways to do things (like rigging, training, drilling etc), bought into one way of doing things. I realize I have a way of rowing that’s not very common, but the crew blindly bought into it. Halfway through the race against Brookes I realized that nobody was deviating from the rowing plan, which was an amazing feeling considering the crew was only three days old. It really made me proud of those guys for keeping their calm, & humbled as a stroke to get their unconditional trust & support.
