Raphaela Tayvah

Assistant Masters Coach
Raphaela Tayvah

As the assistant competitive masters coach, Raphaela brings her passion for continued teaching and learning to Row New York’s mission of the development of lifelong engagement and empowerment through rowing.¬†As is the case of many rowers and coxswains, she fell in love with the sport when she first watched the sunrise from the coxswain seat in college and has never looked back (except when safety demands it on the water). As a coach, Raphaela’s coxing career shows through in her dedication to all in the boat as she shares this technical knowledge with the athletes. She competed as a varsity coxswain while an undergraduate at Smith College, from where she holds a BA in art history and translation studies.
