What News? What’s new online in Rowing


Here’s your weekly opportunity to enjoy tales from others who also love rowing. This weekly round-up is for a short list of interesting, in-depth articles for you to read over the weekend.

This week in the rowing online news several stories caught our eye

Some of the rpaining problps with dynamic ergs as simulators relate to: 

1. Inelasticity of the connection to the power-absorption systp 

2. Inability to simulate the loss-making “slip/stall” processes between 

blade & water 

3. Inability to match the implicit continuously variable gearing of the 

real stroke 

4. Poor/absent modelling of the drag & inertial effects on “boat” & crew 

That said, good dynamic ergs are far better rowing simulators than any 

fixed erg can be.
