Stan Pocock ’46 is an innovative boat builder, oarsman, and lifelong coach for a multitude of winning crews. In 2012 Stan was honored at the US Rowing Golden Oars Awards Dinner in New York as he received the US Rowing Medal of Honor.

Stan Pocock coached at the Univ. of Washington from 1947-55. He coached multiple U.S. crews in the Olympics, winning several medals including gold in the men’s four in 1960 Olympics in Rome, Italy.

Stan has generations of boat building in his blood. Originally the family built boats in England. Stan’s father, George, founded the Pocock Racing Shells boat building company with his brother, Dick, in Seattle 1913.

A testimony to Stan’s influence on the fraternity and the sport of crew, our luncheon crowd for Stan’s presentation spanned 8 decades.
