The Thames Diamond  Jubilee Pageant occurred today and was quite a spectacle with over 1,00 boats parading down the Thames to to pay tribute to Her Majesty The Queen’s 60-year reign . In case you missed it, we will post a few shots that we took while watching BBC America. Rowed, or man powered boats as they were called in the broadcast of all sizes and shapes worked their way along roughly 14 miles of the Thames. My only wish is that the broadcasters would have shared the names of the vintage boats as they rowed by!

One of the many reasons that I love to row is the ability to see things on the water that I would not otherwise see, witness, observe or notice. I have been capturing memories through photography most of my life. Some of my favorites have been taken in the rowing community. I will share some of mine and I invite you to share yours as well.

1908 Edition Book Cover

The Complete Oarsman, written by R. C. Lehmann, published by George W. Jacobs & Co. Publishers in Philadelphia in  1908. The book includes 59 illustrations and photographs portraying good and thoroughly bad positions, equipment, regattas, races, and portraits. The books includes chapters on The Early History and the Development of Boat Racing, The Emancipation of the Amateur, The Evolution of the Racing Ship and its Oars and The Development of Style. Although I have not read the entire book, I find that most everything applies to how we currently row, perhaps even more so now than in the 70’s when I rowed in college. The book is  something that anyone who loves rowing should put on their Rowing Reading Bucket List. I will post some poetry, anecdotes, and quotes in my nest post. If I have piqued your curiosity, The Internet Archive has this classic book available online.
