Many of the athletes are continuing to improve their stroke with extreme poise and precision. The technicalities behind moving the boat at maximum velocity are extensive and require years of training to maximize their potential. 

Rowing small boats in the summer is one strategy to improve what we call "boat feel," a term used to describe a rower's aptitude for minimizing movements that decrease boat speed. Body position, slide speed, front end connection, and power application are the factors that separate experience levels of rowing. 

Racing head-to-head at practice teaches the athlete how to perform when its needed.
