Great Quotes and Boats

“To learn the quickness and spontaneity that characterizes good sculling, spend some time watching animals. From them you can learn the grace that comes from their economy of movement and their complete reliance on their senses.”

– Frank Cunningham, Rower, coach, teacher USRowing Hall of Fame member, USRowing Medal of Honor (2011), author of The Sculler at Ease (1992).
