Rowing, Rowing, and More Rowing

Hey guys! My name is Cat and I row stroke seat in a girls 8. I love rowing and I'd love to answer your questions or just chat. See you at the finish line. :)

My friends both row and have been going out for like a year now - it was their birthdays last week - I am in love with their cake

We’re expected to steer a $35k+, 56ft long boat with two strings attached to rudder the size of a credit card while simultaneously listening to the coach, explaining to the rowers what we’re doing, executing the drills and pieces perfectly, and getting everyone from point A to point B without hitting anyone or anything. Coaches assume that because we’re tiny tyrants, we can handle any situation and be fine, so they tell us “steer straight and don’t hit anything” and think that that is all we need to know. As any coxswain will tell you, it’s not!
