Traffic rules

Processes

All age groups race on the 1,000 meter course. Generally, races are started on six lanes in four-minute intervals.

If there are more than six entries for a race, we will divide boats in heats. Each heat will have winner. If there is just one entry per age group, the crew will start in the race of the adjacent younger age group.

Victory ceremony

The winner of each final receives a medal.  If we have to consolidate several age groups in one heat, the winner of each age group will be determined and awarded with a medal.

Clothing

All crews need to wear uniform clothing, including crews with rowers from different clubs. The only exception are crews in the Sunday MIX races.

Training times

Training at the course is possible during the following times:
Monday through Wednesday – all day (no rental boats available)
Thursday – all day (rental boats available until 7pm CET)
Friday through Sunday – from dawn to 30 minutes before the first race and from 30 minutes after the last race till dusk

Anti-Doping

Attention: Doping tests  are possible even with Masters regattas. If you are on any medication, which are subject to notification according to anti-doping rules, please have it certified by your doctor and drop off a copy of the certificate in a sealed envelope at the race office before the competition. The envelope is opened only in the event of a doping test in your presence. Please pick up the envelope again after the regatta.
