Rowing Tales 2019: Stories about the sport of rowing from Olympic to beginner

Looking for a gift for the rower in your life? Rowing Tales 2019 book is here!

Every rower in the world, every coach and every coxswain has told a story to someone about their experience of rowing. This book curates tales from around the world - some are the highest Olympic representatives; others enthusiastic club members. The lighthearted "banter" between coaches and the hilarious attempt to commentate in a foreign language will make you smile. Insights about famous athletes like Eric Murray and Drew Ginn from their former coaches help us understand what it takes to become a champion. Joe Rantz's daughter from the "Boys in the Boat" fame tells us more tales about her Father beyond his rowing career winning Olympic gold in 1936. Each tale is re-told with wry smiles and the gleam of remembrance of past regattas. We have tales from athletes re-visiting a race from their youth, others finding their first experience of a regatta overwhelming. Some of the tales started through the RowingChat podcast, hosted by Rebecca Caroe.
