The Three Pause Drill is a drill that I learned from Jim Joy. The purpose of this drill is to break down the parts of the recovery and the entry to gain a better understanding of how to let the blades meet the water efficiently.

  1. Start by sitting at the release, blades square in the water.
  2. Release the blade from the water, then slide up the full slide and pause with the blades feathered on the water.
  3. Then square the blades into the water and again pause.
  4. Then take a full stroke to the release and release the blade onto the feather.
  5. Let the boat glide, then bring the boat to a stop and reset.
  6. Do the drill again.
