General – Incorrect oarlock height
|Mistake:||The snap-on washers on the oarlock pin are not at the correct height and/or the boat is not properly rigged for the rower.|
|Observe:||Put the rower in the finish position:
Trunk: see if the rower does not lay back too much or too little;
Blade: see if the blade(s) is/are fully covered;
Hands: Look if and where the hands touch the body. In sculling look at how far apart the hands are.
|Cause:||The rower has not learned how set to oarlock height properly or has forgotten it. The boat is not suited for the rower or rigged wrong.|
|The draw cannot be optimized, the rower cannot finish properly (too low) or pulls beyond his control (too high).|
|Move the snap-on washers up or down. If the oarlocks are too high, place the snap-on washers above the oarlock. When they are too low, place the washers under the oarlock. The snap-on washers are most easily removed from the oarlock pin by pressing both outer ends with index and middle fingers, as shown in the last photo.|
|When sculling, the handles are drawn just below the nipples to the chest. In sweep rowing this applies to the outer hand.|
|General – Foot stretcher not set correctly|
|Finish – Washing out|
