We start our countdown of row2k's top 31 images of 2017 with this shot of the worst cox toss I have ever seen. The St. Joseph's lightweight eight tried to throw their coxswain into the Schuylkill River after winning their event final at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta, but he barely made it into the water. He was fine.
row2k used a new DIY camera mount during the cox tosses at Stotesbury with the goal of capturing slow motion video on iPhone while shooting the normal still shots with a dSLR. You can view the video here (over 134,000 views at this point), and see the whole sequence of images here.
