Being an Oarsman is bigger than just getting in a boat and rowing. It’s how you carry yourself outside the boat. It’s how you treat your teammates and it’s how you treat your competition. There’s a level of respect there and a level of perspective where you fit in the sport, and the history of the sport, and everything that’s happened before you, sort of being a part of that.
