Now that The Sport of Rowing has basically sold out everywhere but at its publisher, the River & Rowing Museum in Henley, England, my work is nearly done, and I can start thinking of my next projects.

I am very pleased to have been invited by Matt Zatorski of Community Rowing, Inc. in Boston to participate in their upcoming What Works Summit (see below) on its final day, Saturday, February 18. In fact, the curriculum of CRI's ongoing Institute of Rowing Leadership is making extensive use of my book, and I will work hard to support this program every step of the way.

Then on the evening of Saturday, February 18, I will be the main speaker at the Cambridge Boat Club Annual Dinner. The subject of my speech will be the unique life experiences that propelled me to write a four-volume 2,500 page history of our sport, and I will leave plenty of time for an extensive question-and-answer period.

On March 10, I will speak at the Rowing History Forum at Mystic Seaport (details to come at My topic will be a fresh look at Steve Fairbairn the man, the athlete and the coach, and I think you'll be surprised. There will be other fine speakers as well, and I encourage everyone to come, participate and then stay for that evening's National Rowing Foundation Hall of Hame Induction Dinner at Mystic Seaport (details to come at Those who attended last year's inaugural dinner can tell you this is an event you do not want to miss.

Is there something I can do for you or for your program? Contact me at I will be at the Power Ten Dinner in New York next week, my Penn Reunion in May and the Olympics at Dorney Lake in July. I hope to see many of you in the coming months.
