All the participants who register for the rowing competition will later receive an invitation to register themselves, with an option to rent a boat.
You can pay your seat/boat during the event.

When the times from the bus company for 2013 are known, we will update you with the necessary information. Please note that this will only contain information about travelling in the cities of Antwerp or Ghent, not the travelling between the cities. Travelling between the cities could best be done by train, as the line between Antwerp and Ghent is served several times/hour, whereafter you can take a bus or tram to reach your destination in the city. An update regarding those times will also follow soon.
Bronze, silver and gold medals for each category in each competition.
You’d better get fit, because we all know overall fitness is one of the keys to win a rowing competition. The site on the "Watersportbaan" offers a rowing track of 2.3 km and 5 lanes.
The tournament guarantees suspense and fun!
