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.
You’re not interested in lame “go fast quick” schemes. You’re not trying to make the national team selection tomorrow with no work, no time, and no sense. You’re not chasing after a magical silver bullet that will solve all your rowing problems.
Mainly, you’d just like some solid, smart advice on improving your rowing technique and knowledge of the things that make crews go fast. Stuff that actually works, written by experienced athletes and coaches.
In other words, you don’t have to be brainiac to “get” this stuff. But you’d have to be an idiot to believe some of the ideas peddled by some online sport coach “gurus” (many of whom have never coached a string of winning crews).
Oh, of course: we’ll be doing it free.

Different Newsletters for different folks
We know not all our readers are the same – so we select different articles for different readers.
If you want to read everything we suggest you subscribe, follow us on Twitter and Facebook or Masters Rowing International Facebook Group and visit our blog daily. There are articles which we don’t mail and updates from Twitter and Facebook which also don’t make it beyond social media.
To thank you for your attention, one lucky subscriber each month gets a surprise gift from us. To keep you guessing – the computer selects a reader at random (no, bribery won’t help you get picked). Here’s the archive of prizes and winners.
And we’ll also send a discount code giving free shipping on your 1st order from our shop.
Well we’d be unfair if we didn’t also give you some special offers and deals from our shop as well. When we have new products to sell we offer them to our Rowperfect newsletter readers who test them out and write reviews for us. Thanks to you, we’ve found some best-selling gear and got manufacturers to improve their products.
