The home of rowing

Clean water is the sport's natural habitat which is why all rowers are committed to the application of environmentally-sustainable practices in the use and management of water. In numerous clubs, rowers have the opportunity to practise rowing as a community sport or to pursue it as a competitive sport. One of the oldest rowing regattas is the annual duel between the eights of the British universities of Oxford and Cambridge, which has been held since 1829. Rowing is one of the oldest Olympic sports and was added to the Olympic programme at the start of the modern Olympic Games in 1896.
