Commonwealth Rowing Association Beach Sprint Championships

Swakopmund, Namibia, 2-4 December, 2022



Competing at a Commonwealth Event is a truly unique opportunity for both rowers and coaches wishing to represent their nation at the highest possible level. All home nations will be sending a team looking to perform with distinction at the Commonwealth Rowing Association Beach Sprints Championships to be hosted in Swakopmund, Namibia from 2-4 December, 2022.

This is a fantastic opportunity for English, Scottish and Welsh Rowers to represent their nation. The Beach Sprint format is ideal for agile and skilled scullers from either coastal or river rowing. Competitors start the race with one of the crew sprinting down the beach before jumping into their boat. They take off and slalom around two buoys before turning around a third at 250m. For the final stretch, they sprint back to the beach before the rower at bow bolts from the boat to sprint up the beach to the finish line.
