When you’re facing a challenge with your rowing equipment, performance, or team, a one-on-one consultation can be worth its weight in gold.
I’m Mike Davenport, and I’m a rowing expert who has been speaking about rigging, rowing equipment, and coaching for over 40 years. I’ve taught students at every level, from collegiate to Olympic, and I know how to communicate straightforward advice, skills, and techniques to rowers, coaches, and self-taught individuals.
Whether you’re looking for a quick, one-off consult on improving your technique, a breakthrough strategy session to boost your speed or racing performance, or you’re facing a coaching challenge with your team, I’m here to provide the expert help you need.
How Consults Work
With over 30 years as a teacher and 35 years as a rowing coach, my experience spans the entire sport, so we can discuss any topic you’d like. Some common consult topics include:
- Equipment issues
- Rigging numbers
- Coaching problems
- Technical challenges
- Rowing techniques
… and more. You tell me the challenge you’re facing, and I’ll provide the rowing expertise and solutions to help you move forward.
I’ve consulted with Mike on multiple occasions. I initially contacted him with some rigging questions. And while he has helped me with my rigging concerns, what he has provided in the way of sculling knowledge and advice has been truly invaluable. Mike has a real talent for looking at the big picture so you not only understand how to fix your concerns, but also what might be causing them. In addition to all this, Mike is just a great guy to chat with and I look forward to many more rowing conversations.

To book a consultation with me, just click one of the buttons below. I’ll be in touch via email within 24 hours to schedule our first session.
We’ll connect in the way that works best for you, whether it be phone, email, or Skype.
Phone or Skype sessions are offered in 30-minute or 60-minute blocks. 30-minute sessions are just $50, and 60-minute sessions are only $90. I’m also available to travel to your location and consult with you in person. (Travel fees may apply.)
Most situations can be resolved via phone or Skype in just two sessions – the first to discuss the challenge you’re facing and the solution to resolve it, and the second after applying the solution, so you can report back to me and get extra feedback.
I find what Mike talks about is refreshing, truthful and realistic. I have started to notice the problematic things Mike mentions and his techniques, which tend to be subtle, are useful. I enjoy reading his stuff, as it’s amusing, but with a serious and informative message

You may want two or three sessions to work through a particularly challenging issue, and if that’s the case, we’ll determine how many sessions you might need in our first consult.
Email consults are a little different. We may need just one solid session to resolve your problem, or a few back-and-forth emails to get to the root of the problem and sweep it away.
Either way, in our first session we’ll identify the true challenge you’re facing. We’ll also determine the resources you have and how best to use them so you can move forward into clear waters.
Together, we’ll find solutions that work fast – and that work for you.
If you’d like to discuss a consult or have questions about how we can work together to improve your situation quickly, just get in touch . I look forward to hearing from you.
