"Yep, sliding seat it is! My technique's not great at the moment, but I do think I've managed to get a hold on pushing with my legs rather than pulling with my arms. There's a few guys in the boat club who are still working on that,…"

"I rowed all through my teen years. Competing in both sliding seat and fixed seat competitions. It's a great sport. As for sliding seat (the kind you're probably referring to). It can take a lot of practice before you really get your…"

"Where? It's not a cheap sport. I rowed for some time in college. It was one of very few varsity sports that took anyone with a pulse over six feet (except coxswains). Very beautiful but also very demanding sport. Training was often grueling…"
