Draw – Digging deep
|Mistake:||The blade goes deeper into the water than necessary to keep the blade covered.|
|Observe:||Blade: watch how deep the blade disappears underwater.
Shaft: look at the shaft of the oar, how far it disappears in the water.
Handle: look at the vertical displacement of the handle(s) during the draw.
|Cause:||There may be several reasons for this:
|Difficulty with the release, balance disturbance. Catch a crab. Wrist injuries because the load is not in one straight line.|
|Remedy:||In any case, use Vary blade height to stretch the movement space (Differential approach). In addition, depending on one of three causes:
|Visually, the blade should remain visible marginally.|
|A rower's blade disappears too far under the water. This can be determined by looking at how far the neck of the oar disappears under water.|
