Hello and welcome to the home of coxing education since 2000! No matter if you are a coxswain, a coach, a rower, or someone interested in learning more about the sport, this is your site. Coxing is an often misunderstood part of the sport of rowing, and I hope what you find at The Cox Guide helps set the record straight by providing the best tools for learning. It doesn't matter if you are new to the sport or an experienced competitor, the Down and Dirty Guides has something for you!

As you look around the site you will discover the book that started it all, The Down and Dirty Guide to Coxing©, the companion CD: On The Water Audio©, the new Down and Dirty Drill Card©, and much much more. Come back often as we update the site with fresh new ideas geared toward making the skills of coxing, and the art of coaching easier. Also find my column, "Coxing," in Rowing magazine each month. Thanks for stopping by and we hope you find what you need!
