Boris Chang- 2 years agoVermistiS- 2 years agoBaked Utah- 2 years agoa) fast, highly maneuverable, not-to-mention ripped, snowboarding-cool, water-skimming machine OR

b) kinda sedate, only-in-a-straight-line (and

backwardsfor gawd’s sake!), no-doubt fit but fit like Hodor from Game of Thrones, with a maiden-aunts-out-for-some-gentile-Sunday-skiing vibe, floaty boatWhy would anyone pick b) !?

Clearly I’m missing something because ... well, rowers. And they don’t just do it, they appear to

loveit. So, what is it? Early morning after early morning, come rain or shine, with what by all reports are mind-crushing levels of physical discomfort; why?P.S. And the title, about rowing being passion, is a bit click-baity, no? I thought it was going to be all about how rowing might look less cool, but in practice is where the awesome performance lives. In other words, “Yay, rowing!” And of course, that’s not how it actually comes across. Or is the point being made that the only thing keeping rowers going, in the face of it appearing to be (in the video’s terms) a suckier sport than kayaking, is that particular form of bloody-minded insanity typically referred to as “passion”?

So even though Robert Manson was aiming for 2km he still beat the best kayaker of the world. In a race over 1km he would be even faster than 3:15.

M1x 2000m Single Scull - Mahe Drysdale - 6m 33.35s

Men K1 1000m Kayak - Max Hoff - 3m 22.485s x 2 = 6m 44.970s

Women K1 1000m Kayak - Teneale Hatton - 3m 48.560s x 2 = 7m 37.120s

The kayaks are definitely faster than the canoes, and the sculls are definitely faster than the kayaks, but I didn't expect the time margins to be so narrow between the kayaks and the sculls given that the rowers are able to use the strength of their legs.

Another interesting thing is that the kayaker in the video jumped to an immediate lead but didn't increase it by much for the remainder of the race. Perhaps the smaller mass of the kayak allows for a significant acceleration advantage.

edthered26- 2 years agomattice sablain- 3 years agoJules Vangeel- 3 years agoSquid- 3 years agocomsunjava- 3 years agoMr. Sunrise 1961- 3 years agomythic_fci- 3 years agoAccording to ICF regs, sprint K1s (for races between 200-5000m) must weigh 12kg and be 520cm long. You're probably right in regards to the friction for kayaks being lower, plus due to the lower stroke rate of rowers the boat slows down slightly between strokes while kayakers can maintain a more steady speed.

Pete Robinson- 3 years agoWhat does a K1 weigh? A 1x is 14kg (the 2x from the vid is about 26kg), and a lot longer so more friction between the hull and the water.

mythic_fci- 3 years agoAlthough you do have a point in regards to the physiology of it all - I can see how the rowing stroke uses one's legs more. And my apologies about the stroke rates - my point about the faster off-the-blocks acceleration still stands though. Professional kayakers average 110-120spm in sprint starts - compared with 40spm for rowers it's no wonder kayakers are faster off the start.

Pete Robinson- 3 years agoAnd I'm not sure how you row but I've never seen a boat average 50-60 strokes a minute. The fastest men's 8s in the world will get off the start in the high 40s and settle in the high 30s for the vast majority of the race.

mythic_fci- 3 years agoAnd you're right - the kayaker in the video gained a lead very quickly. That's primarily down to the stroke rate - professional kayakers can put down up to 120-130 strokes per minute in sprint races. Although a kayak stroke by nature is less powerful than a rower's stroke, kayakers put down a LOT more strokes - in your average pro race, most kayakers average out at around 90-100 strokes per minute, while rowers average out at 50-60 strokes a minute at best. When you can put down nearly double the strokes, you're obviously going to get off the line faster.

Jason 7- 3 years agoMarcus Roizen- 3 years agoDJmrk- 3 years agoStrahinja Jankøvic- 3 years agoElizabeth Constantino- 3 years agoClément Chanceaulme- 2 years agooneworldfamily- 2 years agoEmily P- 3 years agoAs for why 2 athletes go faster: 2x weight and 2x power. 2x weight = 2x volume displacement = 1.4 (root of 2)x area displacement, hence double the power but only 1.4 times the drag. This is also why men go faster - as well as having a slightly higher power to weight ratio, they have higher weight limit (70kg compared to 57kg for women). Heavier rowers perform better on water due to disproportional displacement.

Men go about 9% faster than women, and doubles go about 8% faster than singles - so you have a pretty fair test.
