Coastal rowing has made an enormous development in the past years. This branch of rowing sport focuses on rowing in open waters. Because of the heavier conditions, the boats are wider and more robust than the boats used on rivers and lakes. The coastal rowing sport also has common grounds with the sailing sport. Coastal rowing guarantees a spectacle on the waters of Rotterdam.
This year on 4th of September 2022 A.R.S.R Skadi Rotterdam and K.R.& Z.V De Maas will organize a coastal regatta, the Rotterdam Harbour Races. The Rotterdam Harbour Races will take place on the Maas.
The start will be a jump start. This means you start with 10 other boats. The course is around 5.5 kilometre. This race in the centre of Rotterdam will be a true spectacle on water.
