Re: US Lightweight Indoor Rowing National Championships

I know rowers like to wait until the last minute to sign up for things, but it would send a signal and be helpful if people sign up for this event early. I think if others see significant sign-ups that will build momentum. So, sign up today! https://www.regattacentral.com/regatta/?job_id=7215&org_i...

Re: Bring LWTs back to 2021 CRASH-B Sprints!

No one is excluding or abandoning LWs..... You just race in the "open" category. Just be happy there's even a "virtual" form of CrashB and focus on more important things in this world. By the way, LW rowing is slowly being eradicated. Might as well get used to it. LWT rowing is clearly on the way o...

Re: US Lightweight Indoor Rowing National Championships

Could please define the Master's categories (A, B, C, etc.) in terms of age?

No offense intended & with the utmost respect to the organizer of CRASH B, but is that his real name or a typo?
Real name.

Re: 2021 CRASH Bs

I saw this over on the Rowing Illustrated Forum. Ben is trying to put together a Lightweight Championship. USRA really screwed this up and now is likely to splinter the CRASH Bs resulting in lower participation in a sport that doesn't have the best reputation for inclusion. PaulG "Here’s an update: ...

Re: 2021 CRASH Bs

Back to the “injustice” of US Championships/Crash Bs skipping LW categories this year, anyone have any ideas how to successfully protest? Seriously, they have time to figure it out, and could simply adopt the World Championship procedures. Easy! Any other disgruntled LWs out there? Well one thing w...

2021 CRASH Bs

Registration opened December 1. What, no weight cateories? Other regattas have figured this out. Also you have to be a member of US Rowing. "Event Classifications This year (2021), there will be no weight-based classes (flyweight, lightweight, and openweight) within events, though age-based event cl...

AT Heat Rate Training: Does anyone do it?

I've been following the research of Seiler and others and it seems like they are not recommending training in the AT heart rate zone. Their guidelines are 80% long distance aerobic training (UT1 and UT2) and 20% anaerobic training (TR and AN). A large part of the Interactive Plan (no longer availabl...

Re: Insight TS515 vs Race 1 Wavecutter vs Echo Singles?

It sounds to me like you could also include the Maas Aero and Peinert Zephyr in your search. Everyone I know who has either of these boats has enjoyed them. I think the Aero is slightly lighter and definitely longer (21 ft) than the Zephyr (19 ft). The exact weight specs will be on the manufacturer'...

Re: Little River rowing boats feedback

I've rowed what I think was the 18' as a double and if you are thinking of rowing as a double, it has to be either the 15' or 18' model. It was easy to rig as a double once you got used to the method and very easy to trailer behind a car. You will need some sort of dolly to move it around a boatyard...

Re: Help me help an 80 year old man

Go slow, go slow, and then go slow. I think very few of us know what it's like to be 80, but I do know recovery from injury will take a long time. I would start with very slow 2 minute intervals, get up, walk around, no more than 4 to start. Getting the form correct will be very important to prevent...

Re: NEW VIDEO! - Canadian Indoor Rowing Championship - My 2K did NOT go to as planned

Credit to you for describing an unsuccessful result that others can learn from. I participate in a lot of OTW Open Water Races (I guess we call them coastal rowing now) and there is usually a warning that logistics can delay you. You have to account for the time to register, get your boat off the ca...
