The Boys in the Boat
...the Rest of the Story

Tuesday, August 16 ~ 7:00pm


If you've read Daniel J. Brown's The Boys in the Boat, you're familiar with George Pocock, arguably the most influential man in crew racing and revered mentor to thousands of oarsmen throughout the U.S.

Jim Pocock, George's great-nephew  will discuss the book, tell family stories and share his memories of George's achievements (designing the eight oared shells which won gold medals in the 1936 Summer Olympics) and enduring influence on rowing in America.
