Product description

“Way Enough!”: Recollections of a Life in Rowing
Stanley Richard Pocock
With photos by Josef Scaylea
BLABLA Publishing, Seattle, Washington, April 2000. First edition.
Hardback; 310 x 240 mm; blue boards with gold titles on spine; ii & 360 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket in a protective transparent cover.
The book is in fine condition. Stanley Richard Pocock was born and lived all of his life in Seattle. He served in the US Navy during World War II. Returning to Seattle, he expected do to nothing but join his father George in business, until Al Ulbrickson, the Husky crew coach asked him to be assistant rowing coach at the University of Washington. He coached the lightweight and freshman crews from 1948-54, seldom losing a race. He answered the call to help prepare a small group of men to compete in international and Olympic rowing, winning the gold medal in 1956, 1960, and 1964. He advanced shell design with many innovations such as fibreglass and carbon fibre, but beautiful wood was closest to his heart. He spent his lifetime teaching the Pocock (Conibear) stroke and method of rowing, emphasizing precision over brute strength.
In “Way Enough!” Pocock gives his personal and direct account of these experiences. The photographs, historic and contemporary, will be equally appealing to all those with an interest in competitive rowing at this level.
