Feathering the blade

Rowing technique analysis of Olympic gold medallist Mahe Drysdale (by Xeno Müller).

Among other issues, attention is brought to feathering the blade correctly. It should be done while the hands are travelling to the stern. In case of Mahe Drysdale, Xeno says he could easily have rated two strokes per minute higher without extra energy expenditure.
