Rower Tricks: The Check-Checking Tube

This hack spotted in action on the Charles, bound for the 2011 Worlds

Want to know if all those miles and drills have taken the stern check out of your boat? If you row a single or double, then you might want to try this simple hack that they've been using on the Charles, and likely all over, for years: the Check-Checking Tube.
This is another great little trick that--for years--did the job that some pricey electronics now try to tackle: telling you if your boat run is constant, or if you need to work on a smoother pick-up around the front end.
We checked in with a hacker who learned this one way back for a quick hacker how-to on this one:
We would attach a length of copper tubing to the stern of a single, double pair, or a straight four. It works best when the stroke seat can see easily see it, so it's not so great on a stern coxed boat.
Bend the tube so that it follows the line of the stern. As you row, water is forced through the tube, and creates a fountain off the stern. The idea is to keep the height of the water shooting out of the tube as constant as possible. As the boat slows down and checks at the catch, the height of the water will drop drastically.
The Check-Checking Tube is pretty easy to install--yet another boathouse-centric use for electrical tape-- and a great training tool. We hear that it creates some drag, so it's probably not a good idea to race with it (which might explain why we don't see it on every single at the Head of the Charles on race day--yet!).
The copper tubing bit definitely makes this an old-school hack, and we've seen more modern versions that get away with plastic tubing and a really robust straw might even do the trick on a single. The trick is to catch the water coming down past the hull, direct it upwards, and see if your speed is constant enough to keep the "fountain" steady.
Pretty slick, eh? Maybe the best part--aside from being another great use for a straw--is that it provides constant feedback, with no batteries and no coaching required.
Have another neat way to coach yourself on the water? Share your tips--and hacks--in the comments below.

"Backwards" is a warm film about competitive rowing




"Backwards" is a warm film about competitive rowing, a propulsive sport that's only rarely enjoyed a big-screen close-up (1984's "Oxford Blues" and 1986's "The Boy in Blue" come to mind). Although this modest indie may not make a huge splash, it just might inspire some hearty younger viewers — especially women — to grab a set of oars and find their bliss.
The efficiently plotted drama follows 30-year-old Abigail Brooks (writer-producer — and former rower — Sarah Megan Thomas), a recent U.S. Olympic rowing team alternate with dreams of a gold medal. But after four more grueling years of training, when the hard-driving athlete is again named an Olympic alternate — instead of a first-string participant — she quits the team and moves back in with her widowed, skeptical mother (Margaret Colin).
As movie luck would have it, though, there's an opening for a crew coach at Abi's alma mater, nearby Union High, where, even more fortuitously, her old boyfriend, Geoff (a quite good James Van Der Beek), is the athletic director. Abi's soon fervently training a promising pair of rowers (Alexandra Metz, Meredith Apfelbaum) for England's Henley Royal Regatta while rekindling her relationship with Geoff.
It's simple stuff, but it works.
Director Ben Hickernell ("Lebanon, Pa.") nicely captures rowing's grace and beauty — and pain and power — against a lovely array of iconic, Philadelphia backdrops.

Athlete Spotlight: Alexandra Tsiavou of Greece is on top of her game



The above race video shows Alexandra Tsiavou (stroke) and her partner in the lightweight women's double, Christina Giazitzidou (bow), making yet another podium appearance in the 2012 season – this time racing to a silver medal at the European Championships in Varese, Italy. The combination has been the most successful women's lightweight crew over the past several seasons, consistently placing among the medals, but no individual lightweight athlete has been as successful as Alexandra Tsiavou (our RoRy winner forFemale Athlete at the Elite Level in 2011). In fact, to find the last time that Tsiavou entered an international race without coming away with a medal, you have to go back to the final of the lightweight women's double in Beijing, when Tsiavou (just 23 years of age at the time) and then partner Chrisi Biskitzi placed sixth overall.

Since then, Tsiavou has been on an absolute tear. After winning the world championship title for the second time in three years in the lightweight women's double in Bled last year, Tsiavou had another incredible season in 2012. Tsiavou and Giazitzidou took gold at the first world cup, bronze in Lucerne, and bronze at the Olympic Games, before Tsiavou entered the lightweight single at senior worlds in Plovdiv. And guess what? She won.

For more, check out FISA's latest video interview with Alexandra Tsiavou, shot prior to the Lucerne World Rowing Cup this year, as well as a written interview with Tsiavou from the 2010 season.
