Baby Coxswain

Everyone can agree that coxing is incredibly important for the safety of the crew, for protecting the boat from damage and for other’s safety.

The question is when is a young cox too young’?

Coxswains have to have a level of maturity to control the boat but also to assess potentially dangerous situations and adjust for them accordingly. When put like this, we can see that coxing is in fact similar to driving a car. Car Licenses protect other road users from inexperienced and potentially dangerous drivers.

Should there be a minimum age requirement to begin coxing much like driving?
