FOR THE TIME BEING THE INTERNATIONAL VECHTRACE  WILL NOT TAKE PLACE

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.

Slight change in race course due to a new bend in the Vecht

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.
