And while I’m very excited, I’m also nervous. I would love some advice. (e.g. what to wear, call tips, steering, anything really.) Do any of you have any tips for a first-time cox?
They asked if it was okay that they were submitting calls because they’re a rower, not a cox.
Of course it’s okay! Rowers are certainly allowed to submit calls; actually, I really welcome them. As both a cox and a rower, I know it’s very important for the two types to have excellent communication. Rowers have to listen to and understand the calls, so it makes perfect sense for them to tell what calls they have.
Also, (slightly unrelated) I’d also like to hear what things motivate you. In a race, what is the best way to motivate you to do your absolute best?
Because my boat isn’t the fastest at getting out/in and since there’s a time penalty…
Did you win? If so, by how much? If not, what do you think went wrong?
What is the difference between coxing men and women? Just out of curiosity.
Rowing is 2ks. The whole sport revolves around them, and they are what most people focus on and set goals for. You can’t have a successful blog without the mention of them.
A few things:
So if you want to unfollow this blog because we’re not an advice blog, do it now. This blog is not about that. This is just a fun little blog with things that rowers can read and say, “Oh, hey, I relate to that.” That’s how it started. And that’s how it’s going to stay.
