Tips for racing by one of our own!
I recently read this article and have picked up some tips from a fellow coxswain. That’s right, even after 17 years of coxing, I’m constantly learning and seeking out new ways of sitting in that 9th Seat!
What I like most about Seamus’ article is how he describes his way of keeping his voice calm and consistent on race day. Please take the time to read this article here to get his perspective of race day.
The best part of giving coxswain clinics is having the chance to learn from other coxswains. I’m always looking for new ways of coxing and I’m always eager to hear other coxswain’s opinions of how they execute our craft. So please use your fellow coxswain teammates to learn from each other and never stop learning. I’ve said this before and I still believe it to this day…Once you think you have arrived in the sport and mastered it, you will either hit a buoy or drive your 8+ up onto the dock.
Never stop learning!!
Good luck to all coxswains racing at their championship races!!
