Rowing in Color: Pre-Order Store

Denise Aquino and Patricia Destine are two women of color who are dedicated to promoting diversity within the sport of rowing. Both are former rowers turned coxswains turned coaches in the sport. Together they have almost 25 years of experience on the erg, at regattas, in the launch, or at the boathouse. No stranger to navigation or microphones, these former coxswains amplify what it’s like to navigate the topic of race within the white-dominated sport of rowing. 

JL Racing teamed up with Denise and Patricia to create rowing specific apparel with creative designs to get the word out about diversity in the sport. The cherry on top is a portion of net sales from this store will be donated to rowing organizations working toward a better future in our beloved sport. The store closes on November 30th so be sure to check it out!
