There are 54 frames, each representing 0.033 seconds.
The stroke rate is 33.3, with the recovery taking 0.87s, and the drive 0.93 seconds. Do I hear cries of "ratio"? What nonsense!
The water level in the background gives us an indication of the hand heights throughout the stroke, and also the fore/aft pitch of the boat.
