Straight Talk on Coxing and Rowing from Real Coxswains

The Short and Snarky Guide to Coxing & Rowing

From the often hysterical social media account @shortandsnarkyrowing, The Short and Snarky Guide to Rowing and Coxing is funny, irreverent, and something your coxswains will actually read. This is totally unlike other coxing books. Written by two coxswains-turned-coaches with almost four collective decades of high school, college, club, and masters coxing experience and hundreds of races under our belts, we give you the lowdown on coxing for mere mortals that real rowing books would never dare. From novice juniors to senior masters, whether you are a coxswain, a rowing coach who works with coxswains, or a sweep rower who has to take the occasional turn coxing, we promise you'll learn something and we promise you'll laugh out loud. We cover it all from the very first practice to crossing the line in the championship race, and everything in between. We help coaches figure out how to finally get through to their coxswains, share coxing stories and insight it took us decades to learn, and include tons of photos of how to do all things rowing-both right and wrong-taken from the coxswain seat perspective. And we provide straight, candid answers to the most frequently asked questions from our coxing clinics. This is a resource that every coxswain, coach, and rowing club should own.
