WinTech Racing is a racing shell manufacturer based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA.

The company offers a complete line of products for the rowing community. The company's boat designs come from Klaus Filter, a shell designer and naval architect who was the former chairman of the International Rowing Federation's Materials Commission. He was also the Director of Research and Development for East German rowing for the thirty years prior to reunification. Klaus is currently a Production Consultant for WinTech Racing.

WinTech Racing partnered with The Flying Eagle Boat Company of Hangzhou, China and Drew Harrison Racing Shells in 2004 to create one of the largest boat manufacturers in the world. Flying Eagle has nearly 200 workers who produced well over 2,000 racing shells per year within their 500,000-square-foot (46,000 m2) state of the art manufacturing facility.[citation needed]

WinTech Racing is a worldwide company with offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
