Riggers for the Viking

Thank you for your contributions, everyone! This fundraising campaign has ended.

Help buy replacement riggers for the Viking, the team’s EM8+!



RCAA, meet THE VIKING. This sweet EM8+ is usually rowed by the varsity women, and the team needs some help repairing it for the upcoming fall season. The riggers at 3 and 4 seat need replacing and the current spares in the inventory aren’t a match. We are looking for alumni who are interested in sponsoring two (2) Vespoli riggers (frames & backstays) for the team.

Our fundraising goal is $800, which is our estimated cost for the riggers plus taxes and shipping.

Lead time from Vespoli is 6-8 weeks, so we are aiming to place this order in mid-July to make sure the team receives the riggers (hopefully) before their first race.

Any donation amount ($5 minimum) is appreciated!

Click the “Crowdfunding” link right above this description to see our progress so far!

Please note that RCAA will be purchasing these riggers directly on behalf of our alumni, friends, and family. Therefore, no funds will be passing through RPI itself. Unfortunately, this means that we are unable to provide a tax-deductible receipt.

If you have any questions, please contact Alex at president@rpicrewalumni.org.
