May I suggest that the picture on the cover of Im Schwalbental is meant to portray this episode (from Chapter XXXV (The Race)):-

The illustration clearly shows the two bigger children leaning over. I am not sure the artist got it right, and judging by the proximity of the reeds, I would have thought the keel needed lifting the other way. I bow to superior expertise on that, but I suggest that the German artist was not quite such a duffer as people are claiming. It is always easy to mock.
