On the Rudder – Rowing News
The force that a rudder generates on the shell has two components with different directions relative to the boat: parallel and perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the boat. The parallel component of the rudder force is the resistance that slows the boat down. The perpendicular component creates a torque on the boat that makes it turn.

Ocean Rowing Rudder – SeaSabre
Through the years many ocean rowing boats have had failures in their steering system with rudders snapping in half or with fixings breaking. Some boats have been able to overcome this by strapping oars to the stern or using panels of the boat to create a makeshift rudder, for others it has caused the crew to call a halt to their row.

Coxswain (rowing) - Wikipedia
Rowing boats are designed for speed, not maneuverability, so steering requires effort. Coxswains may steer with either the tiller (a cable connected to the rudder), commands for increased "pressure" or strength from rowers on one side of the boat, or both, depending on what is necessary in the situation.

Among the most important pieces of rowing equipment, aside from the body of the boat itself, are the oars, gunwale, skeg, rudder, oarlock, rigger, seat, foot stretcher, collar, and cox box. The oar is the instrument that the rowers need in ...

Toe/rudder on a quad? : Rowing - reddit.com
Every time you use the rudder, it increases drag. BUT if you can use the rudder efficiently, then it can be good for the boat because the crew is not focused on increasing/decreasing pressure on one side. In sprints, I would prefer not to have a rudder or have it tight so that’s it’s somewhat difficult to move your feet/rudder.

Guide to Steering and Coxing Rowing Boats
The position of the rudder varies slightly from boat to boat. The fin (which stabilises the boat) is positioned on the underside of the boat between stroke's seat and the stern, underneath where the cox sits in a stern-loader. The rudder is ...
