Beat Beats Boat Dave Decisive Determine Difference Distance Exchanging Eyes Hide All Factor Faster Hard Length Lose Make Margin Mike Person Perspective Piece Pieces Race Racing Result Rowing Scott Seat Seconds Selected Short Speed Stand Stroke Time Less More Hide All See All
Even after rowing in all these pieces, it's often hard to determine who will be selected because the decisive factor in seat racing is speed not margin. Boat X beats boat Y by two lengths over 1000 meters in a time of 2:54. After exchanging "Dave" from X to Y for "Scott," Boat X beats boat Y by one length in a time of 2:51. From the rower's perspective, the result is that Dave beats Scott by a length. But in Mike's eyes, Scott beats Dave because on the second piece, X was three seconds faster-even though it only beat Y by a length.
I like the stroke seat. I want to be there. I want to have the race come down to a short distance and be the person to make the difference. I can't stand to be behind and I don't want to lose.
