100 crews from about ten countries chase each other over a 6.4 kilometer course through the middle of Basel. Beside the Mirabaud Classic the 350 meter Sprint des Rois 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.
