From the Publisher:
With a silent sweep of oars through the water and what appears to be an effortlessly smooth glide, sculling is indeed one of the more graceful sports. Moreover, it is one that is swiftly gaining popularity as it moves beyond its tradition as a university pastime and extends into the realm of community clubs and recreational activities. "Essential Sculling" is the perfect introduction to this sport -- instructing the reader in all of the basics of equipment, technique, practice, how to purchase and maintain a boat, and how to get involved in competition.
