rowing mistakes

General – Sliding stroke

Mistake: Container misstake, with a common cause: sliding the blades over the water. Not to be confused with Sliding the blades over the water. This container misstake includes the following mistakes:
the blades are turned out at the finish (Blade turn out) or
washed out (Washing out).
Then the blades are brought to the catch, sliding over the water (Sliding the blades over the water) or
with a tap against the water (Tapping the water regulary) or
with a dive flight (Blade dive flight).
Before the catch, the blades are skying off the water (Skying sculling of Skying sweep rowing) or
dive into boat with the handle(s) (Dive into the boat) after which there
is often squared too late (Late squaring).
A dive into the boat (Dive into the boat) is often followed by a catch with the trunk (Catching with the trunk).
Observe: Handle: see if there is a low draw into the chest and if there is no depth in the initial away.
Blade: see if the blade hits the water on the recovery, if it moves away from the water before the catch and squares too late.
Cause: One of the most common rowing mistakes occurs when learning to row. The root cause is that the coach/instructor allows the rower to Slide the blades overr the water.
The rower feels insecure in the boat and seeks support from the water. In order not to lose this support, the blades are not pushed out after the finish but Turned out or Washed out. In order to have enough space to square, the blades need to come off the water. The rower does this by Diving into the boat) or Skying, so that the blade(s) rise. 
Squaring (squaring) is not very well possible, the blade is in fact too close to the water. Speed is lost by the constant tapping of the water. The rower does not learn to keep balance with the blades on the water. Balancing the sweep boat is difficult. Because keeping balance is done by the draw height and depth of the push out of the blades. And finally, it is difficult to row water-free. 
Because the rower doesn't take his blades off the water, he never learns what it takes to keep the boat level. As a result, he remains scared and does not take his blades off the water: a vicious circle.
It is important that the cause of the Sliding stroke is removed first: the lack of vertical movement in the Finish. Use the exercises Practice finish hand heightPractice finish hand depth and Chopping finish to get depth in the initial away. The other mistakes are dealt with afterwards. For this, reference is made to the detailed information under the applicable mistake.
Feed-back: Tactile on the round finish. Visually on blade at the finish, the blade rotates in a semicircle around the wave made by the blades. Visually or auditory during recovery, the blade no longer touches the water. Visual or tactile: the blade squares just after the knees.
The blade does not come out clean and touches the water. Just before the catch the blades move away from the water. Squaring is often too late.
