Timestamps to the show
04:15 Synchronising male and female mixed crews – look if your oars are parallel; check catch and finish timings – clues you are not together. Easy things to adjust – foot stretchers, Hips level with the pin, practice timing drills to blend your strokes together.
12:50 Buying a boat – Have you got storage space? The type of boat should suit your water and racing choices. Different pricing levels. The right size for your body weight. Comfort is key. Test drive as many as you can.
19:00 Buying second hand rowing boats – how to get a ‘deal’.
27:00 Solving a leftwards lean in a single scull. Check your hand positions at crossover, sit square on the seat, are your elbows dropped? Get a functional movement assessment. Video yourself to see where you go off of center during the stroke cycle.
34:00 Squeeky oarlocks in a single scull. Clean them, check the inserts – consider olive oil as a lubricant.
