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.
Jim McCurdy Sr. has been a lifelong supporter of Husky Crew, so it was our pleasure to include him in our luncheon group.
