  • Hi, I'm Patrick, and today we are going to talk about the sport of rowing!
  • First of all, there are two different types of rowing.
  • In sweep oar rowing, oars range from 370 cm - 376 cm in length. Here, each person has one oar. The types of boats are pairs, fours, and eights.
  • Also, pairs and fours can have coxswain, or a person that steers the boat. Without a coxswain, one person in the boat will have the ability to steer the boat by moving their toe back and forward. 
  • Sweep Oar Rowing
  • Sculling boats can  be singles, doubles, or quadruples.
  • Sculling
  • Sculling is a type of rowing in which each person has two oars that are about 284 cm - 290 cm in length
  • And now that you've learned about the types of rowing, it's time to learn about the proper technique.
  • The stick figure to the left shows the position in the drive phase. From here you can push the legs. This is because you are sitting on a sliding seat. Then, you lean back and pull in your arms.
  • The drive phase.
  • In rowing, there are two phases.
  • The stick figure to the right shows the beginning of the recovery which comes right after the drive. From here, bring your arms forward, lean forward, and move forward on the slide in that order. This brings you to the drive phase.
  • And the recovery phase.
  • Lastly, Let's talk about the seats of the boat!

  • In rowing, there are many different boats, but they all follow the same seating rule: heavier and stronger rowers in the center and lighter and more technical rowers in the ends. The front seat in the boat is the stroke while the back is the bow. Then, the rowers are numbered starting from the bow.
