Thanks Team Whitehall, year number 1 of rowing is under my belt. I bought the boat sight unseen, had zero rowing experience, zero rowing knowledge, zero rowing strength, and at best watched a few Olympic events every four years while sitting on the couch. So, I jumped in. Bingo! I’m now a full on, passionate rowing geek. Next step is to hire myself a rowing coach who can yell at me from the shoreline to do this and do that, and row like an Olympian (a middle aged one). How cool would that be?! YouTube can only take you so far.
