Is there any info for beginner coxing on actually how to steer, i.e. little movements, at what part of stroke is ideal etc ?

Sure thing, you can get all the answers from Coaching the Coxswain ebook by Chelsea Dommert.  It was written by an experienced cox who got frustrated at the lack of tuition coxes got from coaches.  Her approach is to guide the coach (who has never coxed themselves) on the best way to instruct and guide a cox.
