The 13th edition of BaselHead has unfortunately been cancelled due to flooding. The next BaselHead will take place on 16.11.2024.

100 crews from about ten countries chase each other over a 6.4 kilometer headrace through the middle of Basel. Beside the Mirabaud Classic the 350 meter Sprint will be an attraction. Thousands of fans cheer them on, and there are attractive cash prizes to be won.

The long-distance Mirabaud Classic starts and finishes near the “Mittlere Brücke” bridge. It’s a demanding course both for athletes and coxes, and an excellent advertisement for the sport of rowing. For spectators, there’s excitement all the way.


Entries are limited to 100 crews. Be sure of your place at the11th BaselHead 13th of November 2021.
