Heats begin today in the beautiful principality of Monaco after yesterday’s qualification races and opening ceremony for the 2016 World Rowing Coastal Championships hosted by Societe Nautique de Monaco. Coastal rowing often referred to as open water rowing or offshore rowing is a lot different than rowing on a lake or river because of the challenges found in coastal ocean conditions. Boats are designed wider and heavier than the lightweight sculls we are used to.
The 4km heats taking place on the Mediterranean today from 8:20am to 5:00pm are:
Group 1: CM1x, CW2x, CW4x
Group 2: CW1x, CM2x, CM4x+
