About Us

ES Rowing Services Ltd is a newly formed company focused on providing an all-round service to the rowing world, specialising in boat repairs and the supply of rowing spares, racking, pontoons, coaching launches and more.

Eric Sims, formerly employed by Eton Racing Boats, will head up a small team of highly skilled and motivated individuals who between them have over 55 years’ combined experience of the rowing market.

ESRS will take in all makes of boat for repair (Empacher, Filippi, Aylings, Sims and Janousek etc) as well as providing support to past ERB customers. Integral to ESRS’ repairs service will be its weekly trailer collection from the Tideway / Thames Valley areas with similar arrangements to the rest of England and Scotland on a monthly basis. ESRS hopes that club members will think of this as a quick and cost-effective repair service which will save them valuable time.

Steve Pitcher who started with Matt Wood when it was based on the Putney embankment over 25 years ago, will be heading ESRS’ spares team. Steve has built riggers for Sir Steve Redgrave – winning Olympic and world titles – and has extensive knowledge of the spares and riggers used in all makes of boat. All rigger types will be available from ESRS and a next-day delivery service will be operated for its spares orders.

As Technical Director of Dorney Lake, Eric helped develop much of the racking and pontoon systems now employed at the facility – as well as coaching launches and training equipment, these will also form part of ESRS’ product range.
