Re: US Rowing explains Coastal Rowing

Paul W.

Actually, Coastal rowing has a longer and more varied history in the UK especially the South coast of England (sliding seat) and especially long history of "Cornish Pilot Gigs"(fixed seat) in the SW and the Isles of Scilly including one of the worlds oldest races. Unfortunately FISA went with the European style which is more off-shore than coastal compared with the lighter English styles.
