Video of the Week: The University of Cape Town Men's VIII
This week's video comes to us from Cape Town, South Africa, and features some epic music along with some very nice technical rowing from the University men's team, both on the water as well as on the erg(o). The style is very British, with a nice, upright posture through the finish and release. While there are some interesting rigs through the film (note the switching back and fort between a standard and a bucketed 5-4 lineup), the crew seem to handle things quite well, and make most of what is apparently a fairly demanding training regimen. The video features some feedback from the coaches and the athletes, as well as a number of extended shots of the rowing -- certainly a quality production and one that showcases the program at UCT very well.
