What is Rowing?
Rowing is the propulsion of a displacement boat, with or without coxswain, by the muscular force
of one or more rowers, using oars as simple levers of the second order and sitting with their backs
to the direction of movement of the boat.
In a rowing boat, all load bearing parts including the axes of moving parts, must be firmly fixed
to the body of the boat, but the rower's seat may move along the axis of the boat.
