Coastal Sculling Award
The coastal sculling award is aimed at coaches and event organisers from all types of rowing, who wish to learn how to prepare rowers to race in beach sprint and endurance competitions domestically and internationally using the World Rowing and British Rowing rules.
The award is designed for rowing coaches and event organisers and aims to provide both with the following:
- Confidence and competence to coach rowing on coastal waters (<1.5km offshore) and on and off swimming beaches
- Knowledge to run safe offshore/endurance and beach sprint training sessions and empower their rowers to operate safely on coastal waters (<1.5km offshore)
- The tactical and technical understanding of beach sprint format to prepare and support rowers and boat handlers to race
