I am willing to serve as Chairman. I don't understand rowing
very much, but I get the impression that the rowers do most of
the work and the coxswain has a role in coordination and timing.
I used to row in my undergraduate days at Harvard. One thing to keep
in mind is that the only the coxswain can see where the boat is going;
everyone else faces backwards. The coxswain not only steers, but he
pounds the sides of the boat and yells a lot. He is also responsible
for providing lemons for the rowers to suck on.
