So, even if you’ve never sat on a slide, adjusted your feet on a shoe plate and squeezed your hands over a pair of oars to glide over the water, but if you share the team spirit and enthusiasm proper to the sport, you can always be part of our team as a volunteer. This year the World Rowing Coastal Championships is in Oeiras and will take place simultaneously with the Beach Sprint Games.
