‘Hear the Boat Sing’ (HTBS) was founded in March 2009 by Göran R Buckhorn, a Swede living in Mystic, Connecticut. HTBS has a team of writers trying to live up to the HTBS motto: ‘This blog covers all aspects of the rich history of rowing, as a sport, culture phenomena, a life style, and a necessary element to keep your wit and stay sane’.
We try to our best ability to answer readers’ questions on rowing and sculling, and if we feel that the question has an interest for the general reader of HTBS, we will come back to you to ask permission to publish the question and the answer on HTBS.
Views in articles on HTBS are entirely the views of the article writers, and not necessarily those of HTBS.

I’m looking for the book “Rowing” by Coach Richard Glendon. I think it was published in the 1920’s but all I can find is an image of the book’s title page
It was published in 1923. It’s hard to find, but try http://www.abebooks.com
However, watch out for cheap pirate prints from China and India!
