The system facilitates an optimal row performance accelerating the boat to a considerable speed. In the sport of competitive rowing the traditional sliding seat mechanism is used. Although the system became controversial in competitive rowing, Planeer BV implemented it in the first prototype of the Volans 2, which was targeted at recreational rowers. This master thesis is about the redesign and development of a new sliding rigger system.
