Beach Sprints is an emerging international discipline that starts with a sprint on the beach of between 10m and 50m. 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.
