It’s simple: rowing makes you thirsty. Yet grabbing your drinking bottle in between strokes takes precious time. You want to keep your bottle within reach, but finding a practical spot on board is not that easy:

There aren’t any bottle holders available yet for sloops (= small rowing boats). With about 1600 rowers nationwide it’s a popular sport in the Netherlands, however that’s not enough for a commercial product. Quite a shame, since a good solution would make a big difference during competitions.

The Saga begins!

Legend has it that Saga was the drinking buddy of Odin. She would never let his cup go empty, making her the perfect patron for the new bottle holder.

Designed and made in Deventer by 6’4″ design manufactory, for sloop rowers by sloop rowers: the Saga!

Just place Saga next to you on the rowing bench. Her anti-slip bottom with an integrated suction cup won’t budge even in difficult waters. The drinking bottles will be held safely between her soft curves.

Handmade from skin-safe silicon, Saga is extremely robust, flexible and comes in seven bright colours:

The Saga is currently only available in the Netherlands. Drop me a line if you’re interested in getting one for you or your team:
