Sweep Rowing is a manual that addresses all three—the oarsman, the coxswain, and the coach. I set myself a page limit so the book is straight meat and potatoes, not an autobiography. I have set down details I’ve learned over the years but never seen written down anywhere. The object is to remove mystery and improve a crew’s enjoyment of rowing in one quick read.
No book on rowing has ever taken this approach, and it’s about time. I wanted to make a written contribution as many as 20 years ago, but I was well aware that the sport wasn’t finished surprising me. Now, after 25 years of experience with crew, I’m ready to offer this book, and I think the rowing community is plenty ready to have it.
