British Rowing Beach Sprint Finals          

What are Beach Sprints?

The Beach Sprint format is ideal for agile and skilled scullers with a performance background, from either coastal or river rowing.

It starts with a sprint on the beach for the rower or one of the rowers. After entering the boat, the boat slaloms around buoys, turns around and rows straight back to the beach before one of the rowers exits the boat and runs to the finish line.

What are Offshore Championships?

Offshore races usually take place over 4km for heats and 6km courses for finals and either start and/or finish off a beach or out at sea. This is the race for you if you’re wanting to challenge yourself over longer distances!
