21 races (dependent on entries and the requirements to add or remove heats) will take place throughout the day. Races are held over a 2000m course. From a stationary start up to a maximum of 12 boats race towards a pre-set line of 12 buoy markers, spaced 20m apart perpendicular to the beach at a distance of 1km from the start/finish line. At these buoys boats execute a turn and race the 1km back to the start/finish line.
