This week we are focusing on technique here on Rowperfect – each day we will be publishing a detailed technical article about the rowing and sculling stroke cycle.
Our goal is to help you confirm what you already know and uncover things that maybe you haven’t thought about – challenges which help you to improve your understanding.

The pattern of information is identical
Each article is set out in the same way – because we believe asking challenging questions will help our readers figure out answers. Learning by trying is probably better than an unquestioning fidelity to a single tutor.
- Description of the part of the stroke
- How to coach this part of the stroke
- Benefits of doing it well
- The perils of not doing it well
The rowing stroke and sculling stroke won’t be learned over-night. But by testing your personal understanding, we hope you’ll be sharper at doing it yourself or teaching it if you’re a coach for the coming season. Watch daily for our updates!
