RowingEdit

  • shoot the buttv. verb form synonymous to bumshoving
  • chuckn. planks of wood slotted together to rest shells on. syn. chock. I've honestly never heard chock in four years of interacting with people all over the eastern half of N. America
  • catch - current def could be expanded, or sense added idk. the catch is more of a physical position; when you're up the slide, rotated out, arms straight, etc. the blade actually goes in the water just before the catch if you're rowing properly (see backsplash)
  • check, check down - to immediately turn the blades perpendicular to the water and drop them in, in effort to stop the boat as fast as possible

  • nov – short for novice, any rower who's rowing their first season
  • puddle - the splashy thing of water (like a wake? idk) that happens after u put your blade in – Clear those puddles!
  • hotseatv. i'm just gonna describe it b/c i'm bad at defs:
    Problem: the same shell is being raced in Race A at 9:00 AM and also in Race B 9:45 AM. There is not enough time between races for the Race A crew to dock, walk the boat to the launching docks, wait in line, and hand it off to the Race B crew. That whole process can take 20-30 mins, not counting the 10-ish minutes it takes Race B to row up to the start of the race.
    Solution: Race A docks at the whatever docks are closest, they get out of the boat, and Race B hops in and launches. Often you have a way to signal to dockmasters that you need to hotseat so they can give you priority; it's usually a bright red plastic sheet or something of the like.
