MORE ROWING NOTES.
Club four. The former have been out most
regularly, the lattar, during the past week at
all events, were never once together as a crew.
This is not as It should be, and, as a natural
consequence, the betting so far is strongly in
favor of the Prince Alfred crew. Still there is
time, even now, between this and the race for
the Pelican Rowing Club, to pick up that
uniformity which at present is conspicuous by
its absence. the Prince Alfred crew are as
"Scull" truly says, better than her last crew,
because they are lighter - for the simpler reason
that their boat requires a light crew - otherwise
good big men and better than good little men.
But he hardly does justice to a past coxswain
who steered them admirably in the race. As
fore the Prince Alfred crew, so gar as their
rowing is concerned, the Captain of the Pelican
Rowing club has expressed the following
opinion without any reserve, and I suppose
there is not much objection to quoting it here:
—"The form of the crew is not good, but as
they row with great uniformity, they can beat
a crew composed of individually better oarsmen
in whom that essential quality Is lack
ing. There is not a man there who rows
as good a stroke as the former stroke
Mr Shaw, but I always thought that he and
No. 3 were too heavy for the lines of that boat.
Pelican Rowing Club four are by no means so good
a crew as the crew which won the Champion foars
in 1867. and were beaten by the late Prince Alfred
crew in October of tbat year. They are a
more formidable crew on paper, but the race
has to be rowed on water, and their training
so far appears to have been done on paper.
The stroke and coxswain of last year are still
in the boat, The rest are new men. If their
new no. 3, who has been rowing stroke in the
Falcon of late, is as good a man out of the
boat as he is in it, he is the greatest acquisi
ion the Pelican Rowing Club have made since
it has been a club.
