Conn Findlay lives out in Belmont, California and rents a few rowing shells to the high school program. He is a wonderful fellow and has some great memories of all those Olympics. Conn is one of only 2 persons to medal in two distinctly different sports in recent summer olympics. (the other being Roswitha Krause - swimming and handball) He coached at Stanford Univ for a number of years as well, and twice sailed on the winning America's Cup team (1975,77).
