      Tremendous thanks go out to 1987 World Champion and Olympian Seth Bauer, and to four-time World Champion Pete Cipollone, for their cooperation and willingness to share their obvious skill and talent with us.

      A warning: some strong language will be found in the transcripts. I have left it intact because I believe that the intensity and passion involved in rowing, and in much of sport, often results in the use of strong language to convey strong emotions and intentions. The language is not overly offensive, but some minimal discretion is advised.
