Rafting skills

Over the past few years, both rowing and paddling skills have improved in rapids. Although the principles are the same, the technology differs between the two types of rafts: single paddle boats and paddle-propelled boats. A scull boat is a boat operated by one person equipped with a fixed rack and a row of oars. A paddle-propelled boat is a boat without a frame or frame. It is operated by a boat captain and a team of people who are used to operating canoe paddles. To fight a river, the crew must combine their rapids exploration skills with the following rowing skills. Single paddle boat operation skills

The rower straightens down and flows down, making people feel extremely happy. However, in the rapids, he was facing the rushing water. To see the obstacles to be encountered and try to block the water, these slowed down the ship and gave him time to move the ship from one side to the other.

Pull the paddles on both sides back, using the power of the whole body. Each stroke should be a continuous action, and the force acts evenly on each paddle. A basic technique is to face the danger and pull hard.

Because this pulling is the most powerful, many operations use this method to slow down or retreat the boat. To change the angle of the boat, use single or scull in turn. This technique is used to make the ship go straight in large waves, set the angle of the ship towards the ferry or turn the ship. Single paddle rotation means that when one paddle moves, the other paddle is on the water. It takes a bit of skill to rotate the sculls. When one propeller is pushed, the other is also pulled. The scull-operated boat will turn faster and can turn around the center, while a single oar will give the boat some backward movement. To avoid direct obstacles, ferries are often used to cross the water from the side.

The basic skills are as follows: Determine the flow direction of the water (not necessarily parallel to the river bank). Turn the boat to the left and right so as to make an angle with the water flow (that is, set the ferry angle ). When the force of the current on the side of the ship (caused by the angle of the ferry) pushes the ship through the side from the side, a strong knock will reduce the speed of the ship. In this way, even the The smallest water movement may be on the ferry: In order to reach the ferry, turn the rudder to the angle you want to reach, change the position of the boat in the river, and most importantly keep the boat at a certain angle with the flowing water, and then start paddling backward Instead of the river bank. For example, where the turn of the current is later than the turn of the river, the ship should make a 45-degree angle with the flow, rather than a 90-degree angle with the river. When the boat is in a ferry position (for example, not directly opposite to the current), straighten the boat with a rotating shaft, slide over obstacles or pass through a narrow passage. Use two paddles to steer the boat. It is similar when using the rear pivot to rotate, but let the boat pass through the rear of the obstacle, and let the bow of the boat point directly against the current. This method is used to keep the ship at an obtuse angle (greater than 45 degrees) or to avoid obstacles when there is no room to turn the bow (a standard axis of rotation). Use the rear pivot to steer.

Displacement boat operation skills Unlike one-man paddle operation, the displacement propulsion is through the joint efforts of the captain and the crew, and most of the operations are downstream, and the ship advances at a faster speed than the current. The crew sat on the side of the boat and spread the power evenly on both sides of the boat. The captain commanded from the bow, using the oar in his hand as the rudder. The cooperation of people on board is closer, because the ship s forward trend often forms a tight road in obstacles. The captain must therefore anticipate the water conditions ahead and promptly notify the crew to follow up, rather than run counter to the current.

The command is as follows: forward (F) -paddle forward (Backkpaddle) -paddle backwards left (L) -left paddle backwards, right paddle forwards right (R) -right paddle To the rear, the left paddle stops forward (S) -stop the paddle straight (K) -the paddle moves forward, making minor adjustments if necessary, keeping the bow facing the waves. With these commands, you can operate the boat like a person rowing. In calm waters, the bow points in the desired direction, with all oars forward. The front and rear rotary shafts are easy to rotate. Straight is used in a series of parallel waters: each crew member paddles forward, looks at the water, and makes minor adjustments if necessary. Pause between other commands and during breaks. In waters with many obstacles and dangerous watercourses, there is simply no time to precisely point to the passage and let the oars go forward because the boat is moving down too fast.

In fact, the following (1) counter-current ferry and (2) downstream ferry can be used, because this method can reduce the speed of the ship and allow the ship to pass through the water to the edge. Opposite current ferries require stronger forces. In this method, the paddle should be forwarded, the boat and the water should be at an angle, the slurry and the countercurrent should be at an angle, and point to the side you want to reach; the force required to cross the river is less, but the oarsman can see clearly It is easy to turn the bow at the last moment. It is to make the rear paddles move so that the bow is at an angle to the countercurrent and point to the side you think of. The paddle boat operation gives us an exciting (often wet throughout the body) way to experience the river. Every experienced crew can quickly execute orders to pass the ship through complex obstacles and currents (this operation) to make the crew particularly close to the river and the crew themselves.
