Having rowed myself since the tender age of twelve
and having been around rowing ever since, I believe
I can speak authoritatively on what we may call the
unseen values of rowing - the social, moral, and
spiritual values of this oldest of chronicled sports
in the world. No didactic teaching will place these
values in a young man's soul. He has to get them by
his own observation and lessons.
