  • 00:23 Intro

  • 01:42 You must ALWAYS respect mass - you’re trying to attach a vessel in a fluid reactive medium to a large solid object

  • 02:20 A bit of wisdom from Sally - coxswains only get to practice docking once every practice whereas rowers get to practice thousands of strokes

  • 03:45 First step is evaluating environmental factors you need to consider - docking pre-work

  • 04:41 Understanding your crew and its capabilities - how responsive they are affects your calls
