International Beach Sprint Events

“It’s exciting to be part of rowing at this time when it feels like something completely different is about to happen and be at the start of the sport as it’s growing!”

Robyn Hart-Winks (2019 WRBSF Silver Medalist)

British Rowing will be sending a team to represent Great Britain at the 2022 World Rowing Beach Sprint Finals, taking place in Saundersfoot, between the 14-16 October, and will support representation at other international beach sprints events in the 2022 season as appropriate.

This is the third time the event will be held. British Rowing is committed to growing all forms of the sport including coastal sculling. As the host nation of the 2022 World Rowing Beach Sprint Finals in Saundersfoot, Wales it is our aim to use this event as a springboard to build a world-leading coastal sculling programme in the lead up to the 2026 Youth Olympic Games and the potential inclusion into the 2028 Olympic programme.

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 of between 10m and 50m for the rower or one of the rowers. After entering the boat, the boat slaloms around two buoys then turns around a third buoy at 250m and rows straight back to the beach before one of the rowers exits the boat and runs to the finish line The Rules of Racing for Beach Sprint are available on the World Rowing Rule Book (Appendix 23) and British Rowing Rules of Racing (Appendix F).

More information about the 2022 World Rowing Beach Sprint Finals can be found here.
