Watch for pulling the oar from the gate - Coxswain's view
Another item easily seen from the coxswain's seat is when athletes are pulling the oar away from the gate at the finish.
Easily fixed: in sweeping ask the athlete to maintain outward pressure on the oar.
In sculling ask them the use their thumbs for the outward pressure.
Sometimes if the athlete is too far back in the boat this can cause this issue.
