Kudos to the US Men's Crazy 8s for winning the gold. Kudos to the Women's 8s and Men's 4s who also won gold at the Wolrd Cup.
Funny thing about real races, everyone uses the same design. It's the person or team that determines the outcome. That's something the billionaires running the other Cup should think about for the future.
It’s a great art, is rowing.
It’s the finest art there is.
It’s a symphony of motion.
And when you’re rowing well
Why it’s nearing perfection –
And when you reach perfection
You’re touching the Divine.
It touches the you of you’s
Which is your soul.

It's not a Laser! The Eastport Nesting Pram by CLC (Chesapeake Light Craft), Is this a better option than an El Toro, especially for a city dweller who has boats and assortment of boards in his shop, garage and side yard? Who am I fooling, I still want a Toro.
Here's a great video that takes you on a boat building journey from start to finish in 7 minutes.
Human power all the way. In September 2008, Julie and Colin Angus completed a 7,000 km journey from the northern tip of Scotland to the heart of Syria using exclusively human-powered amphibious rowboats.
I wonder if the Tillerman can tow his Laser with a bike? He's worried that gas is going to go up in price.
