query about the start

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Florida State University Rowing : One Thread

I'm doing a project on the instant in time before a race starts. Thus it would be very helpful if i could learn something about the start in rowing. a friend of mine rows and she said it is practised a lot. why? why is it important? any statistics on the energy released at that time? on the speed one starts at? any ideas on where to find this information? i'd really appreciate it. Thanking you, Abha Bakaya.
