One thought on “Snow Patrol’s ‘A Hundred Million Suns’

  1. Thanks for clearing all that up. I reebmmer the early days of getting a lot of pains from my top shoulder trying to move the boat with as much top arm drive as pull. Good to know that I am evolving in the right direction. Now that we’re on the topic of dropping the body, I’ve noticed that a lot of dragonboat crews used to drop their bodies down on the catch a lot but now I start seeing that less and less amongst the good teams. I personally let my body drop naturally a little bit (without throwing it down) after I set my rotation up just enough so that I get the blade buried. Then I initiate the sit up motion. I am not sure if that is the correct way to go about it so perhaps you can comment on this. Instead of dropping their bodies after setting up rotation, I also see a lot of crews just drop their arms/shoulders to get the catch. That seems to allow for a faster rate and smoother stroke but as they drop their arms and shoulders, dont they lose a good portion of their reach/positive angle by the time their paddles reach the water? I guess this might then lead into a discussion of paddle length and height of the recover/clearance the tip of the blade has above the water.Thanks for all the help. It is greatly appreciated. Keith
