Young rowers are taught in a special boat.
United States of America.
Introductory intertitle reads: "The rowing season is on - and here's the novel way they train the college crews on the Schuylkill (sp?) River U.S.A."
Unusual shot of a rowing team - it is as if the cameraman is sitting where the cox would usually sit. A man stands in the middle of a large rowing boat with men rowing either side of him. He shouts directions to the rowers and they practice their strokes. C/U of the legs of one of the rowers as he rows. C/U of the oars (or "blades") as they move through the water.
Note: this looks like a special kind of training boat as the coach is standing on what look like planks of wood which run in between the two sets of rowers.
