Mediterranean success in finals of coastal championships

Saturday was full of finals at the 2016 World Rowing Coastal Championships in Monaco. The wind died down over night leaving a flatter race course for the Saturday finallists. The day began with the B-finals which were raced over the same 4km course as the heats. This was followed by the six A-finals raced over a 6km course that added two more important turns.

Spain had an outstanding performance and won the overall trophy with a total of 58 points, Italy took second place and France third. At their first-ever coastal championships, Tunisia took home one medal, a bronze in the women’s double.

Clear skies, cruise ships and rolling waves for the coastal championships

As the last cruise ship moved out of the harbour off the coast of Monaco, the heats at the 2016 World Rowing Coastal Championships began. Sunny skies and warm temperatures welcomed crews with relatively flat water for the morning races. As the day progressed, the wind came up and the water began to challenge rowers with choppy waves.

The heats were raced over a 4km course that featured four important turns. The course started close to the harbour and then followed a rectangular pattern, bringing the race back along the shore to finish in front of the port.
