Rating vs Boat speed - Ken Davey
Vital to good race performance for all crews is the concept that boat speed comes before rating.
If this doesn't happen and the rating doesn't match the boat speed then the boat gets "stopped" each stroke and the boat slows making the problem worse.
Remember, boat speed leads to rating not the other way around for best performance!
