  1. The elbow is pointing down in diagram 4. THIS IS WRONG. The hand, wrist, forearm and elbow should all be in a straight line at the finish of the stroke parallel to the water and sides of the boat, before the blade is released from the water by pushing down with the forearms and hands. If you pull down with the elbow, the blade will take on a slight vertical percentage and will reduce the amount of horizontal send on the boat and may also release the blade early from the water.
