Echomax and their new distributors in the USA, Datrex, are the latest company to join New Ocean Wave as a partner company and offer a discount to those taking part in New Ocean Wave events. Echomax is the world’s premier manufacturer of FCC approved active radar enhancers and their new Active-XS unit provides exceptional visibility for small vessels such as ocean-rowing boats on both X and S band radar systems. Each crew will receive full details of this special discount and the reduced prices with their race entry welcome pack.
Datrex are also distrubutors of numberous other items of mandatory equipment and have kindly extended this exclusive discount to include their extensive range of other safety equipment including life rafts, flares and EPIRBs. With both of these partner companies exclusively supporting race entrants, this makes it much easier and cheaper for every crew to obtain the minimum equipment required for rowing an ocean as part of the Pacific Rowing Race.
If you’re entering the Pacific Rowing Race from a country other than the USA and will be shipping your boat to the start line this is especially good news as shipping flares is very costly and difficult. By buying the flares that you need from Datrex and having them shipped to the start you can easily ship your boat and then add the flares when you arrive.
