This vintage book is a detailed guide to boating, with information on design and construction, history, boating as a profession and for sport, training, rowing clubs, and many other related aspects. “Boating” would once have been widely read by young students of Oxford and Cambridge, but still offers a wealth of invaluable information to the modern reader with an interest in boating. Contents include: “The Rise of Modern Oarsmanship”. “Scientific Oarsmanship”, “Coaching”, “The Captain”, “The Coxwain and Steering”, “Sliding Seats”, “Four-Oars”, “Pair-Oars”, “Sculling”, “Boat-Building and Dimensions”, “Training”, “Rowing Clubs”, “The Amateur, his History and Description”, “Rowing at Eton College”, “Watermen and Professionals”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on boating.
