Making the Boats that Win

Season: 4
Eps: 415

In 1936, nine working class young rowers from the University of Washington went to the Berlin Olympics and won gold, beating out Adolf Hitler’s elite German crew. It’s a riveting story that was captured in the bestselling book, “The Boys in the Boat.” The winning shell was called the Husky Clipper, made of cedar, spruce and ash and built by the legendary George Pocock.
