The International Vechtrace is a 5-mile race for skiff, (mix-) doubles and coxed fours and coxed C-fours. International because of the participants field and the 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-organized by Bootsclub Nordhorn from Germany.
On the Dutch side of the border a bend has been added to the Vecht. This diversion was needed to ensure a better water drainage during periods of excessive rainfall. The Start and the Finish of the Vechtrace have not changed.
On the map of the race course the old trajectory is yellow. Until Google has included the diversion of the Vecht in its maps, it will appear that part of the Vechtrace will take place overland.
