Physical Requirements

What about physical requirements?

There are no specific requirements for age, weight, strength, or endurance, however, trainees need to meet the following standards in completing each qualification task: "(1) each task must be performed personally by the trainees, with no physical assistance; (2) each task must be performed without hesitation; and (3) each task must be performed with confidence." (quote from Boat Crew Training Manual)

Also, any physical limitations and medications must be brought to the attention of the coxswain.  If you don't,  you may be putting yourself and others in harms way.
