Whether you are new to the
sport of rowing or an experienced coxswain looking to improve your
skills, The Down and Dirty Guide to Coxing has something to offer. In
the many years I have been a coxswain, Iíve never encountered such a
comprehensive, yet concise, collection of information and insight as can
be found in George Kirschbaumís book. To know and learn such a body of
information takes decades, to organize it into simple and intelligent
sections is a feat I cannot even comprehend.
Everything you need to know about the
art of being a coxswain can be found here: terminology, commands,
steering, technique, equipment, racing, tactics, and more . . . all
rolled into one easy to read and comprehensive volume. Great rowers
don't happen by accident, neither do great coxswains!
