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.
On the 6th of October 2021, the Board of Rowing Club Salland has decided to, for the time being, stop with the organisation of the Vechtrace.
When RC Salland decides to take up this activity anew, this will be published on the website of the Vechtrace.
