Rowing Calm Waters

Coaches Charlotte Hollings and John Dunn at Calm Waters Rowing taught us how to row a single scull—and it turns out that the tenets of good rowing also make for a good life:

use your mass effectively

listen to the oar

minimize your disturbance in the water (but make good trouble)

it’s a horizontal sport: reduce your vertical

it’s a fluid sport: not discrete steps but a continual, elegant movement
