The first ever Commonwealth Beach Sprints will be held at Sandbanks Beach, Poole in Dorset between the 17th and 18th August, 2018. 

Racing will take place in men's and women's coastal singles and doubles as well as a mixed quad 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.  You can see a video of the Pescara Beach Spints HERE.
