Basic Sweep Rigging This is a very detailed “how to” online course designed specifically for rowers, coaches and those responsible for the rowing equipment. It is easy to get overwhelmed, frustrated and distracted with the equipment. Part of the problem is not knowing what to measure and adjust, when to do it, and most importantly how to do it. I created this course specifically to help you get more comfortable and effective with your rigging. Designed for students in the beginners and intermediate range of knowledge and skills.

This isn’t a course to take to learn how to rig a boat. There won’t be numbers or rigging techniques. This is a course for coaches new to rigging and also a great platform for coxswains who are expected to know the basics about rigging tools.
