Rowers and coaches who need something to work on in their enforced spare time will be given plenty to think about, thanks to Fisa, the world governing body. Some of the best videos for coaches to watch will go up on the World Rowing Facebook page over the next 17 weeks, starting on Wednesday, April 22nd.

 Coaches will get a chance to consider aspects of training, racing and technique. These videos have been chosen for coaches to help them consider areas such as the profile of a top rower, the training necessary to create the profile, the race strategy and, very importantly, what technique moves the boat most effectively. 

 All of the videos are from experts in their field with many of them from top coaches sharing aspects of their technical and training philosophies.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
