Roles of an eight - BBC version
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/o...from Simon, Tue 22nd Mar, 9:10pm
Their description of three is very polite - I guess they couldn't call it the ejector seat...
But otherwise a good guide for beginners to the sport.

Just compare that with ITV's sorry effort at a website for the boat race.

The "map" section is truly special.

Got to love the statistics section:

"Because one rower weighs about the same as the boat itself, if one rower is out of action it effectively doubles the weight to be moved every stroke"

So rowers are weightless when they're pulling hard?
