Race distances[edit]

All races are raced over a 1000 m[1] straight course, whereas the Olympic distance is 2000 m.

Qualification[edit]

There is a limited number of crews permitted to race, so the International Rowing Federation holds qualification events in order to determine who competes at the Paralympic Games. At the Paralympic Games, each National Olympic Committee can only have one boat per event.
