GB coxless four, Sydney Olympic Games 2000
Coxless four designed and built by Aylings which won the Olympic regatta at Penrith Lakes, Sydney 2000. Boat in which Sir Steve Redgrave won his fifth Olympic gold medal, Sir Matthew Pinsent his third, and Tim Foster and James Cracknell their first.
The Atlanta Pair
This boat was used by Steven Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent to win the gold medal for coxless pairs at the Olympic Games regatta on Lake Lanier, Atlanta, in 1996.
The boat was manufactured by Aylings (then of Weybridge, as from 2002 in Huntingdon). Made from Kevlar, carbon fibre, Novex honeycomb and epoxy resin, it started life as a standard production model. Aylings adapted it to the requirements of Redgrave and Pinsent and their coach, Jürgen Grobler, principally by moving the 'staterooms' two centimetres closer to minimise twist of the hull.
