Coxing is an exciting and crucial role in rowing team boats. Good coxswains combine elements of steering, race strategy, technical coaching, and motivation to help their crews reach their potential. Coxswains do not physically row the boat, but they contribute to its speed by providing leadership and direction to their rowers. It is important to recognize that coxswains are really part of the crew. To learn more about the role of a coxswain click on the pic OR email email@example.com.
