rowing mistakes

Crew – Uneven catch

Mistake: The catch of the different rowers in the crew is not the even.
Observe: Blades: Look at the catch similarity of the blades.
Oars: determine that the stroke lengths are equal.
Cause: There can be several reasons for this:
1.  The individual technique is insufficient to make a good catch, see the catching errors.
2. The sliding is uneven, making the catch uneven (Uneven recover).
3. The rowers pay insufficient attention to the stroke.
4. When there is a difference in the directness of the catch within the crew due to individual technical ability, there is a difference in speed between the catches.
Conse-
quence:
Uneven rowing, little synergy in the crew. Speed loss. If the force at the catch is considerable, the rowers who asked to catching experience a severe back strain. This creates the possibility of back injuries, because they have to bring the boat up to speed on their own.
Remedy
boat:
Of course, the individual technique of the rowers must be sufficient to make a good catch. Place the rowers that are most even on the stroke positions. Possible exercises are:
1.  rowing with individual (and thus possibly different) accents where each rower is given an accent to compensate for his deviation from the crew;
2. have rowers row with their eyes closed and listen to the (similarity of the) catch (Eyes closed rowing);
3. rowing with collective accents (Rowing with emphasising);
4. the exercise: Stroke against crew.
Feed-
back:
By ear, by the sound of the catch. Visually by looking at your own blade in relation to the other blades.
Cox
chair:
The blades of the rowers do not enter the water exactly at the same time. The sound of the catch should be even.
