On the International level this style has almost complete dominance, but in club and college competition it has had mixed fortunes because coaches do not understand its basic principles. This book contains a complete analysis of this style - the principles behind it, its appearance when done properly, andits performance characteristics — as well as chapters on faults in rowing, fitness training, psychology, and rig and equipment. It is an indispensabl e guide for any active oarsman. Paul Wilson did the formative coaching of the brilliant 1967 First and Third Trinity crew, which, was Head of the River in the Cambridge Lents and Mays, won the Ladies Plate at Henley, and beatthe Cambridge University crew in the Cambridge Regatta." - from the dj.
