I was taught - by Bob McNair - that the bow person controls the boat (at least in moving water). The stern should respond to what the bow does. Bob was legally blind, and it was amazing to watch him paddle. The stern may set the overall plan to negotiate a rapid, but the bow should be making the immediate decision and the stern following.
