Boat rental

The organising committee will provide the boats and oars at no charge for crews travelling overseas (i.e. not from the European continent – including the UK & Ireland). Accessories such as a CoxBox and Speedcoach are not provided. Most boats will be equipped with Nielsen-Kellerman cables and sensors. It is recommended that you bring your own shoes and preferred oar handles. Details on your boat and oars will be provided beforehand.

Continental crews are encouraged to bring their own boats and oars. There will be security guards during the night, sufficient boat racks, and parking spaces for boat trailers. Continentals crews wishing to rent a boat or oars are urged to notify Regatta Management as soon as possible. Rental fees may apply.

Provisional time table

The FISU World University Championships Rowing 2024 will be part of multiple rowing events held during the same weekend at the Rotterdam regatta course. The other two events are:

  1. the season-closing regatta of the Dutch student rowing community (NSRF), and;
  2. the Argo sprint races.

Student-athletes from all over the world will meet in Rotterdam for four days of racing and can experience the lively and 150-year old Dutch student rowing tradition. As the regattas will be combined on the same venue in the same weekend, the provisional time table will include all three events.

Information will follow in 2024 for crews wishing to participate in the sprint races (500m) on Friday evening or the national student regatta on Sunday (2000m). In case you already require this information because of travel arrangements, please contact Regatta Management.
