Coach using Coxswain recording analysis


Today’s piece from Kayleigh Durm is a recording of an eights race.  It illustrates skill and response to tactics used by the opposing crews.  Highly recommend you sharing this with your club coxes.

Eastern Sprints final 1999

“One of the coolest, most exciting races I have ever listen to.  This is a neck and neck race for the EAWRC championship.  Sarah wraps everything into one package to bring the gold home: tactics, attitude, skill.”

The recording comes from a collection made by George Kirschbaum on the Down and Dirty Guide to Coxing Audio.
