In preparation for the launch of the Coxmate SCT unit with GPS, Rowperfect has been researching places to find good information and advice on coxing. Heres one that we have not seen before.
Published by Emanuel College Cambridge Boat Club, their home-trained cox, Rebecca Dowbiggin, who coxed the winning 2007 Boat Race crew, has written a guide to coxing. This appears to have been written in 2003-4 before she started the CUBC programme but after shed coxed the Womens and Lightweight Mens boat races. So, pretty experienced but not yet at her peak (maybe thats still true as she says she wants an Olympic seat….).
Anyway, its quite specific to the River Cam and to College Boat Clubs – but there are some strong passages that any cox would do well to read for a refresher.
