VIIIs can now enter the Mirabaud BaselHead in two competitions. As well as the Mirabaud Classic long-distance chase, the “Three King’s” sprint over 350 meters will be part of the program.

The 6.4 km course goes upstream under three bridges in central Basel, turns a full 180°, and returns downstream. Athletes and coxes need to adapt constantly to new situations. Another highlight is the “Three King’s” Sprint over 350 meters, which is carried out before the long distance race on the same day.

Crews start at short intervals. GPS transmitters in every boat enable tracking from start to finish. The top three crews in each category receive attractive cash prizes.
