Cambridge Racer Full-sized Plans and Manual

The Cambridge Racer is a performance rowing shell designed specifically for speed. It is fastest in calm conditions, however, is shaped to perform well in open water conditions for advanced rowers. Attributes that allow this rowing shell to move easily through the water include a long waterline length, narrow beam, minimal wetted area (through strategic shaping and a rounder hull with six panels), light weight and low windage. As well as offering good performance, the boat is stable (for a rowing shell), and can manage a two foot chop (with experienced rowers). The boat can be re-entered after capsizing and only a few gallons of water need to be bailed from the cockpit. With the addition of a self-bailer, the Cambridge Racer is a good open water rowboat in moderate conditions.

Plans Package Contents

Our Plans Package includes the step by step manual and full-sized plans that will be sent to you in a mailing tube.  Every piece of the boat (including the 25’ hull panels) has been drawn up full-size, so the shapes can easily be traced onto plywood and cut out.

You can also add on DXF files for the marine plywood parts.  This will allow you to have the pieces cut out at a local CNC shop. DXF files can only be ordered as an add-on to the plans package and cost an additional $30. To order DXF files select yes in the drop-down menu below. They can be downloaded after you place your order.
