National Federations are reminded that the rules for the coastal discipline require rowers to be responsible for making decisions in relation to their level of skills. Please make sure your teams have suitable experience of operating in waves alongside their rowing competency. Please note that teams are not required to bring boats since pool boats will be provided. However, teams are advised to bring their own oars. FISA’s Rowing for All Commission is happy to advise National Federations who are seeking for good training locations.
