Today was one of the most terrifying experiences in my rowing career.
I watched, helpless as my coach ignored my yelling, while my coach backed our four into a security booth. And CRACK went the stern deck and hull.
There is so much more, but honestly, it just makes me sad and angry. Because when you drive a trailer as long as she has, you should know better. You should be more cautious. Two of your coxswains should not be trying to inform you how best to make sure that you don’t damage more boats. They shouldn’t have to.
You should know. At all times, where obstacles are in relation to your boats. The boats are precious pieces of equipment. And even if they can do a good repair, the boat is never the same after that.
