Handling your Sculling Boat on land and on water.

$7.86

Another excellent book by Mike Sullivan. He is an expert rower and a coach and so is very aware of the skills needed to safely handle a single scull.

Mike wrote this for his own club and so it should be adapted to the circumstances of YOUR river or lake.

Get this if you are new to coaching, new to single sculling or just need a refresher on good practice for your rowing club.

Extract

Be aware of temperatures and conditions, 100 degree rule should apply.

The 100 degree rule is that if air temp + water temp is less than 100 degrees I pay close attention to where and what I’m going to row, staying not only close to shore, but generally closer to home. (100 Fahrenheit is 37.7 degrees Celsius).

Do not scull by yourself if water + air temp < 100. If you are not confident of swimming in open bay water, or cold water, please wear flotation. If you should tip over, recommend that you re-enter the boat from the water, as the mud can be very difficult to walk/stand in, though during high tide it’s OK to swim boat to shore and re-enter boat from there.
