The British Offshore Rowing Championships

Date : 16th – 18th July 2021

When : 0800 GMT

Where : Exmouth

Details : The British Rowing Offshore Championships and Beach Sprint Championships are a celebration of coastal rowing. Competitors begin with a beach start before rowing off the shore, heading out along the 4km course in the heats. There will be a deep water finish near to Exmouth Rowing Club. For the finals, crews take on a longer 6km course with the same deep water finish. Sunday sees the Beach Sprint Championships where after a time trial for places, crews race head-to-head, starting on the beach and sprinting to their boats, held in the water by their boat-holders. The two crews then slalom out to sea around two buoys for 250m before turning around the final marker buoy for a straight sprint back to the shore. When they reach land, one member of the crew will jump out of the boat and sprint up to the beach to cross the finish line.

W Series Motor Racing Round 3

Date : 17th July 2021

When : 1325 GMT

Where : Silverstone, Towcester, UK

Details : “Every British racing driver dreams of competing at Silverstone, the home of British motorsport and the site of the first ever world championship Formula 1 race in 1950. It has changed a bit since then, but the modern circuit remains mighty fast and I cannot wait to experience one of the best corner combinations in the world through Maggotts and Becketts in the W Series car. There will be plenty of overtaking at Stowe where all of the W Series drivers will have their elbows out to entertain the British fans who are among the sport’s most passionate and knowledgeable.” Alice Powell.
