The British Rowing Offshore Championships and Beach Sprints is a celebration of coastal rowing. In its third year, the event aims to support the development of coastal rowing in England.

British Rowing Offshore Championships – Friday, 9 and Saturday, 10 August 2019

Competitors start by jumping in their boats before rowing off the shore to the first turning buoy, before heading out along the 4km course in the heats. When returning to the shore, one member of the crew will jump out the boat with a sprint to the finish line on the beach. For the finals, crews take on a longer 6km course with the same exciting beach finish.

British Rowing Beach Sprints – Sunday, 11 August 2019

Following on from the British Rowing Offshore Championships, the very first British Rowing Beach Sprints will get underway on Sunday, 11 August. Crews will go head-to-head in solos and doubles starting on the beach and sprinting to their boats, which will be held in the water by boat-holders. They will slalom out to sea for 250m before turning around the final marker buoy for a straight sprint back to the shore. When they reach land, one member of the crew will jump out of the boat and sprint up to the beach to cross the finish line. This format of event uses pool boats, solos and doubles, supplied by the organising committee. This exciting competition is knock-out racing until a champion is crowned for each boat class.
