Coastal rowing is the rough water alternative to normal rowing. You don't avoid the waves, you look for them. The boats approved by the FISA (World Rowing Association) are unsinkable due to large air boxes. Waves that hit the bow run out of the stern again. Coastal and beach rowing will soon be an Olympic sport. There are already many regattas with such boats. But even those who do not have such extreme demands can go on the water with this boat in almost any weather. Waves caused by the wind or by “sporty” motorboat drivers lose their fright Rowing on coastal waters requires experience and fitness. Never underestimate the power of water or overestimate your abilities. Every boat can capsize in heavy sea waves and especially in the surf.
