Dimensions are provided for footstop height and angle to maximize comfort and efficiency as well as span, inboard and outboard to address the length and load of your stroke. Your rigging should be individual for you and not taken from a rigging chart. Click on Additional Information to read more about the Custom Rigging process.

Club Rigging Workshop

Book a Rigging Workshop at your club and support your coaches’ development. This half day workshop includes a classroom presentation to give coaches insight to the rigging measurement settings and why we change for specific crews and athletes. A three plus hour practical session will give the coaches the hands-on experience of how to measure and adjust the settings. At the conclusion of this workshop coaches will have a strong understanding of where to start and why and how to adjust to provide their crews an effectively rigged boat. Additional Costs include Travel and Accommodations if needed.
Rigging Level 1 The dimensions of span/spread, oarlock height, pitch, oar length, inboard, outboard, footstop height and angle will be reviewed including a hands-on practical session working with club equipment. Rigging Level 2 Advanced level coaches will analyze and determine rigging efficiency. The six factors, drive time, blade slip, effective stroke length, stroke position, stroke rate and ratio will be examined and correlated with targeted measurements for various boat classes
