Rowing rigging

Overlap (sculling)

Concept: The distance the inner handles overlap when the oars are parallel and horizontal in the oarlocks.
Sizes: In centimeters, 18cm–24cm.
+ The hands come to lie more crosswise over each other.
The hands come to lie more one above the other.
Measure: Not, is calculated with the formula: Overlap = (2 x inboard handle) + oarlock width – span. 4cm can be used for the oarlock width of Concept2 oarlocks.

Rowing with a large overlap is more difficult than rowing with a small overlap.

Adjust: By adjusting the:
1.  Oar length;
2. Inboard handle;
3. Span;
the overlap is also changed.
