our history

Over the years there have been many profiles in JRS. Postmaster Olsson formed the association at the end of the 19th century after he had returned home from a trip to America. Another profile within the company was hatter Ove Lostad who, among other things, became Nordic champion in 1946. In the late 1990s, Bo Ekros profiled JRS as the winner of the Henley Royal Regatta, the Lucerne International Regatta and two-time WC- silver medalist. Bo was a prominent profile on the competition courses and is now a committed board member of the Swedish Rowing Association and one of the people who run Swedish competitive rowing today.
