Great Quotes and Boats

“Rowers can do it all, and they can do it well. Joining the rowing team will be the greatest decision you will ever make, if you choose to accept the harsh realities of the sport. By doing so, you will understand the incalculable value of an indomitable spirit – and you will learn, above all, that your achievements in life are limited only by the magnitude of your drive to achieve them.”

– Amy Yao, MD, St. Lawrence coxswain alumnus, Huffington Post contributor.

Great Quotes and Boats

“There is a natural tendency in young oars to pull the slide up with the straps; this is a fault, because it brings the knees up too soon and destroys the natural movement, which is best obtained by thinking of letting the boat run under one.”

– Steve Fairbairn (25 August 1862 – 16 May 1938) Rower, Author (On Rowing, p178), Coach (Jesus College Boat Club, Cambridge University, Thames Rowing Club, London Rowing Club), Author and Founder of the Head of the River Race ((1925).
