Here’s your weekly opportunity to enjoy tales from others who also love rowing. This weekly round-up is for a short list of interesting, in-depth articles for you to read over the weekend.

This week in the rowing online news several stories caught our eye:

The other context for failing gracefully is when you actually lose. You lose a contract, a game, whatever. You failed to win. My high school rowing coach drilled this into me and my teammates: that no matter the situation, if you lose you take the loss gracefully, always respect the winner, and learn from the situation.  Not that we lost often (my coach was excellent), but if we did, we needed to learn as much as we could from the situation so that we could compete better the next time. When we failed, we failed gracefully and were never the sore losers who blamed a loss on others.

And of course, if you have news that you think other readers would enjoy – send it to us via our contact page. Each day we tweet and retweet short rowing news links that our followers are sharing – to get these follow @rowperfect on Twitter.
