the sport that never ends.

This sport in particular is a very time consuming one of which it will take up most of your week and free time. There are many different kinds of rowing,

The Eight: is when 8 men weilding single oars take control of a stern or bow side position in a coxin steered boat.
The Four: is when you only have four men driving the boat.
The Single Scull: A one manned boat requiring complete concentration with two oars one for each hand.

Regattas are the special occasions when the rowers congregate to a single location to row against each other for the worst 5 minutes of their life.

One training technique for the rowers is the Erg (Ergometer for long). This metal contraption evolved from the ancient torture devices of which the enemy would remove all skin from the victims hands and force them to row two thousand kilometers resulting in death.

It is believed that the Vikings were one of the many historical cultures of whom would row regularly through storms and oceans driving them bloodthirsty and ready to pillage the first town they would come accross.
