The International Vechtrace is a 5-kilometer head race for single sculls, (mixed)doubles and coxed (coastal)fours (sweep and quad). International because of the participants and the race-course: the start is in Germany, the finish in the Netherlands. The meandering river Vecht gives the race an extraordinary character. The race is also renowned for its pleasant atmosphere, good catering and atmospheric accommodation at the Salland rowing club. The regatta is co-organised by Bootsclub Nordhorn from Germany.
The Vechtrace Committee has decided to postpone the 29th International Vechtrace until Saturday 1 October 2022.
Due to the Covid -19 virus it is not possible to organise this regatta safely in 2020 and 2021.
However we plan to organise a small scale regional competition in the end of August/beginning of September 2021.
A small scale event will allow us to adapt the programme instantly, when needed. This will allow us to organise such an event without too much organisational hassle and at low cost.
The exact date will be determined as soon as Covid- 19 restrictions are lifted and organising small scale events is again possible.
