In general, the official rowing rules of World Rowing/FISA Rules of Racing apply. The event will take place over the course of 2 days: Friday, 19th of July to Saturday, 20th of July 2024. Races will be rowed on a 2-lane course over 750m in knock-out format. A qualifying race for the knock-out stages will be rowed as an individual race over 750m. If registrations for a boat class are insufficient, the OC will combine 1 or more similar boat classes (for example Masters A/B/C 1x). In that case, the OC will ensure fairness of the knock-out races by using a conversion table to compensate the “slower” boat classes (“Handicap”). The time set in the qualifying race will determine the starting order of the knock-out races (quickest crew in qualifying against slowest, 2nd quickest crew against 2nd slowest crew etc.). In the knock-out races the first crew to pass the finish line will progress to the next round. If the timetable/scheduling allows a final B will determine the 3rd place winner; if scheduling does not allow for a final B, the fastest losing crew in the semi-finals will be awarded 3rd place.

Good to Know

If it is not possible for you to bring your own boat, you can also make use of our boat rental option. A fee is applicable if you wish to hire a boat (including oars). The exact amount of the fee is not known yet, but it is expected that this will be around EUR 50,- per seat per day (including oars). Please indicate upon registration that you wish to hire a boat, and the OC will contact you at a later stage with more information.

When asked for your partner’s name / team members’ names in the registration, we also kindly ask to you provide their registration number, if known and available.
