International Wedau Regatta

The International Wedau Regatta club is the organizing committee of all rowing regattas in Duisburg.
Initially, it was founded as a cooperation of two rowing clubs in Duisburg (Duisburger Ruderverein) and Düsseldorf (Ruderclub Germania Düsseldorf), but today the International Wedau Regatta club consists only of members of the Duisburg Rowing Club.
More information on other rowing regattas in Duisburg can be found on www.wedau-rowing.com.

The Regatta Course

The regatta course Duisburg-Wedau has a length of 2.180 meters and a width of 120 meters. It is located within the Sportpark Duisburg, a cluster of various training and competition venues (including soccer, ice hockey, hockey, tennis, water polo and canoe).
Originally, the area was used as a gravel pit and then was transformed into a sports and recreation venue which was opened in 1935.
In 2007, the venue was extended by a side canal which is connecting the finish area with the start to prevent the racing lanes from waves caused by boats rowing to the start.
