LUCERNE REGATTA ASSOCIATION

The Lucerne Regatta Association was founded in 1903. Since then the Lucerne Regatta Association has been organising rowing regattas in Lucerne, which have been held on Lake Red since 1933. As a result, the Lucerne Regatta Association and the Lucerne Regatta have been writing sports and rowing history for over a hundred years. In 1962 the first ever World Rowing Championships were held here, and Lucerne also hosted the World Championships in 1974, 1982 and 2001. In 1974, the first World Championship medals were awarded in the women’s and light weight category. Lucerne has also hosted the European Championships four times and hosts the annual Swiss Championships.

To ensure that rowing also has a strong future in Lucerne, the rowing infrastructure has been modernised in recent years in harmony with the unique nature and recreational area on Lake Rotsee with a budget of 16 million Swiss francs. The Lucerne Regatta Association and the Lucerne Regatta thus guarantee first-class rowing infrastructure in the middle of a nature conservation and recreation area.

The development at Rotsee has also not escaped the attention of the International Rowing Association FISA. FISA then awarded the European Rowing Championships 2019 to Lucerne.

THE ORGANIZING COMMITTEE OF THE LUCERNE REGATTA

The OC is made up of former top athletes, passionate rowers and rowing enthusiasts. We are working with a lot of commitment, enthusiasm and conviction to create an unforgettable event for you.
