Video of the Week: Symphony of Motion

The quality of this video is everything you’d expect, considering it was made in the ’70s, but the quality of the content is top notch. The title is “Symphony of Motion”, which is borrowed from a quote spoken by George Pocock.

“It’s a great art, is rowing. It’s the finest art there is. It’s a symphony of motion and when you’re rowing well, why it’s nearing perfection. You’re touching the divine. It touches the you of you’s, which is your soul.”

While there’s much to appreciate in this video, coxswains, let’s take a second to stop and really appreciate the fact that we don’t have to wear that ridiculous megaphone contraption thing, seen at 8:07.
