A cox is responsible for the safety of his/her crew on the water, keeping a good lookout, steering the boat and issuing commands to the crew.


Maidenhead Rowing Club values the responsible and skilled job done by its coxes whether on our home stretch, on longer recreational outings or racing – predominantly at other River Thames Clubs, or on the Tideway, at Dorney Lake or Holme Pierrepont.
