About Rannoch Adventure
Rannoch Adventure evolved organically from Founder Charlie Pitcher’s passion for sea going adventure and the desire to excel in all aspects of ocean rowing. The sport has become hugely popular in recent years and continues to grow with events taking place worldwide. Upon completing the 2009 Trans-Atlantic Race, Charlie’s first boat, JJ, beat the entire fleet and then went on to set the solo world record the following year. Rannoch’s second boat, Soma, then smashed this record again soon after.
Thanks to our proven track record, Rannoch has been able to provide high quality and innovative boats to the ocean and recreational rowing communities. We also provide various forms of training and expert advice.
This year sees the launch of our exciting new boat - the Explorer. We are passionate about making rowing accessible to everyone and the Explorer enables us to do just that. It is ideal for recreational rowing in rivers, lakes or estuaries, cruising and camping, challenging coastal adventure expeditions and for training and developing rowing skills.
Rannoch Adventure is based in Burnham on Crouch which is in close proximity to international air and shipping ports.
It is primarily an ocean rowing company and adventure rowing company and we pride ourselves in being the only rowing business out there that is run by rowers and short-handed sailors.
At Rannoch, we have the ability to put our entire focus on just the one sport. Being based in Burnham on Crouch means access to the water 24/7 for training, we are on the doorstep to RYA recognized sailing schools for required courses and have all year round storage cover.
Furthermore, almost all of the trade that is involved with the construction of Rannoch boats is local to Burnham itself.
