Whitehall Rowing & Sail
Both Marie Hutchinson and Harold Aune have extensive backgrounds. Marie in areas as diverse as midwifery and the healing arts to yacht construction, business management, marketing and manufacturing; Harold in offshore sailing, film making, music, sail boat design and construction, business management, and high tech manufacturing.
In 2010 they founded the Whitehall Spirit® Rowing Club of Victoria which introduced “All Water” slide seat rowing to the general public. This has become a business opportunity that is changing the nature of rowing by making it accessible and affordable. Phin’s Water Sports is now in full operation in Marina del Rey, California offering Whitehall Spirit® “All Water” rowing to its members.
The latest product designed and produced by Whitehall Rowing & Sail is the Oar Board® SUP Rower, a fit-on-top unit that instantly converts a standup paddle board into a single scull.
