Rowing rigging

Track slope

Concept: The difference in height between the lowest and the highest point of the tracks, measured from the yard.
Sizes: Measured in centimeters: 1.5cm–3cm
Effect:
+ The higher the slope of the tracks, the easier it is to keep the blade in the water at the finish.
The lower the slope of the tracks, the higher the handle(s) must be drawn draw into the chest to keep the blade(s) in the water.
Measure: The difference in centimeters between the yard and the bottom of the tracks measured at the back of the tracks using a tape measure.
Adjust: Can only be changed by replacing the wedge under the tracks with a higher/lower wedge.
