Rowing with Kevin Light

A couple of weeks ago we switched pair partners to see how we go with different combinations in the pairs. It also gives us a sense of how we all row which should help us when we all row together in the 8. I’ve been rowing with Kevin Light, who was in the bow seat with the men’s 8 that won gold in Beijing. He’s been doing this for over 10 years! Kevin is very consistent and smooth with his stroke and rhythm, which helps with the balance of the boat and allows me to really haul on my oar. We’ve had some good workouts over the past few weeks both in the pair and in the 4 up at Shawnigan lake (where we go for longer rows). Kevin is also a photographer and regularly posts his rowing and other pics on Flickr. You can see them here:
