The EUREGA

The European Rhine Regatta („EuropäischeRheinRegatta“) – for short EUREGA – is the international rowing marathon from the Loreley and Neuwied to Bonn. It is organized annually on the first Saturday in May by the Bonner Ruder-Verein 1882 e.V..

The EUREGAwas first launched in 1992 at the occasion of the 110th club anniversary of the Bonner Ruder-Verein 1882. Founding motto: „Living and celebrating Europe with the Rhine Regatta“.


Routes & classes

Home track – 22,5 km

Each team chooses a track on a lake or a river of 22.5 km length.
When the track is on a river, you will have to row one half against and one half with the current. We know that we will not get completely fair results. This year the focus is less on the competition than on the event of rowing together.

The following classes are available:

1) Casual Class without rating
2) Casual Class with rating
3) Competition Class

Finish

This year the destination will be the same location as the start.

Hints

  1. If there are at least 2 teams that meet the requirements of Masters C (minimum average age 43) or Masters E (minimum average age 55), another class will open for this purpose.
  2. If there is only one registration in one class, it will be attached to another class.
  3. For mixed teams at least 2 women must row the entire route.
