The higher kinetic energy accumulated by the rower-boat system during the drive means higher average speed of the system. As the rower contributes more than 80% of the system mass, acceleration of his own mass is the most important target of the rower’s efforts during the drive. Early in the  XX century, the great British-Australian coach and rowing methodologist Steve Fairbairn expressed it in the following way: “Find out how to use your weight and you will have solved the problem of how to move the boat”.

What could be really done in technique to minimise energy losses due to variation of the boat velocity?

In the previous Newsletter, we have found that at 2km and 5km distances the speed on erg is related to mass as V≈m2/9 and rowing power P≈m2/3. A heavier rower exerts more power, but also displaces more water in the boat, hence creating more drag, which doesn’t happen on erg.

A number of coaches have asked questions, which could be summarised as: “How results on the erg vs. rower’s weight should be used for ranking and selection of rowers?”

This is a simple brief rigging guide, which may help to establish a systematic approach and understand better biomechanical implications of rigging variables.

During World championships 2014 in Amsterdam, strong tail wind with warm and not very rough water helped to set 14 new World best times (WBT), 8 of them in Olympic events. This makes it the fastest Worlds regatta in the Rowing history.

This very important biomechanical variable is not used by coaches and rowers very often yet. We are now focusing on the work per stroke and defining its main relationships with the rower's performance.

Is performance in rowing defined by an average velocity of the boat or by an average speed?

We have touched briefly synchronisation in a crew (RBN 2011/02) and now will try to give quantitative evaluation of these very important biomechanical variables.
