This quote is from Urban Dicitonary – So you know it’s a reputable source!

The sport that consists of 1 to 8 people in which you row a boat with one oar each. It is extremely difficult and takes lots of different abilities. Most people think it involves only arms, which is so far from the truth. Most of the terminology can be related to sex, like the cox, crabs, and phrases like “In rowing, the catch is aggressive, the hands quick, the slide smooth, the drive powerful, and the oar is always hard.” It is mainly a collegiate sport, but has been practiced around the world for ages.

Let’s go row because rowing is the best sport ever!

There’s no delicate way to put this. If you’re a regular Rowperfect reader, you’re just . . . well . . . smarter than most people looking to improve their rowing, sculling, coxing or coaching.
