Book Description
This Book deals with much more than the dry facts of records set and broken - although there are plenty of statistics. It tells the stories of the people who rowed, coached, coxed and administrated the event. It provides an index of the boats and crews from 1901 to 1949, lists of the winners in each year, and includes photographs of many winning crews.

As a record of a great sporting event, The Stroke of Champions serves its purpose well. But it is more than that. It is also a tribute to the competitive spirit of that wonderful breed of amateur oarsmen and women who compete not only with each other, but with their own best performances. This book is in good condition except small corner cut on first two inside pages. (245 Pages).
