A history of world rowing technique and coaching


Peter Mallory is writing a history of world rowing, focusing on technique and coaching.  He is writing the chapters on Colin Porter and Jumbo Edwards at present and has written to us asking if anyone has experience of the coaching and technique used by them, would they read his draft text and comment.

If you want a copy, please get in touch and we'll send you the pdf as well as connecting you directly with Peter Mallory.

    I am currently do a research project at my high school on the evolution of the rowing technique and how it affected the sport and i believe this would be a great resource for my research. If you could send those to me that would be great.

    Hi Rebecca Caroe!
    I am doing a paper for my kinesiology class breaking down the technique of rowing. I would like to see the PDF files to also see how rowing has changed. Since, I am a rower myself I’m very curious!
    Thank you,
    Lillian Torres
