Great Quotes and Boats

“Maneuvering a single shell is like trying to stay upright on a giant knitting needle — a typical boat is 26 feet long and less than a foot wide; balance is either assisted or impeded by the oars, which measure about nine feet each. As sports go, it’s like aquatic tightrope walking, requiring both enormous precision and guts, and I was terrible at it for years — flailing, teetering, nearly flipping the boat on every outing.”

-Craig Lambert, rower, author of Mind Over Water: Lessons on Life from the Art of Rowing.
