Come and experience an exciting weekend of coastal rowing set to the beautiful backdrop of Sandbanks Beach, Poole, Dorset.

British Rowing Offshore Championships – 9 – 10 August 2019

Over the course of the two day event, spectators will be treated to some awesome coastal rowing action that will see competitors leap into their boats on the start line, before rowing out to sea along a 6km marked course. They’ll then race back to shore where a member of the crew will jump out of the boat before running up the beach to cross the finish line in a bid to be crowned Offshore Champions.

Last year, 43 crews took part in the men’s and women’s events with international rowers including James Foad, Imogen Walsh and Louisa Reeve all taking on this exciting coastal rowing event.

This year, we are expecting the event to be bigger and better than before with action on and off the water to keep fans entertained.

It’s a non-ticketed event on the beach, giving fans the chance to get up close to the start and finish line.

British Rowing Beach Sprints – 11 August 2019

During the British Rowing Beach Sprint event 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.

The events offered will be CM1x, CW1x, CM2x, CW2x and CMix2x with competitiors using pool boats supplied by the organising committee. This exciting competition is knock-out racing until a champion is crowned in each boat class.
