    I enjoyed this video. I learnt that I need to increase my rating to stand a chance in the Masters race I’m doing on the 22nd October. I’m way off the pace. I already knew that I have to be quicker at the start to keep up with the other boats. My biggest problem at this time is increasing my power as I am a lightweight tower and everyone seems to get away from me.

      I’m a superlightweight Sharon. The first stroke takes a relatively long time because the boat is stationary. But you don’t need the second stroke to be long and you need to move fast on the slide and get your blades in quickly without hesitation. That first recovery sets the rating and you just carry on from there. You can try practicing recoveries without taking any strokes in order to get that immediacy. Get the blades straight into the water. Don’t waste any time thinking about it.
