Commonwealth Beach Sprints
The Commonwealth Beach Sprints will take between 17 and 18 August 2018 at Sandbanks Beach, Poole, England
Crews from the Commonwealth Nations will take part in the Commonwealth Beach Sprints between 17 and 18 August 2018 at Sandbanks Beach, Poole, England.
Men’s and women’s coastal singles and doubles (CM1x/CW1x/CM2x/CW2x), and coastal mixed coxed quads (CMixd4x) will race on the water in their own individual events, with the men’s and women’s coastal singles and doubles also involved in a mixed relay event.
Racing starts on foot with a beach sprint of between 10m and 50m. Rowers will then enter the boat and slalom the boat around three buoys over a 250m course. They will then row straight back to the beach before exiting the boat and running across the finish line on the beach.
For coastal singles, the rower completes all parts. For doubles and quads, a rower from the crew completes the start and finish beach sprints.
