CORONA UPDATE: LATEST REGATTA PLANNING

We are looking forward to the 2020 Euro Masters Regatta. As the development around the Corona pandemic cannot be foreseen, we continue facing some challenges. Hence, there are a number of special regulations in place:

  • NEW: Please read our Safety and Hygiene Instructions for Participants before making your entries!
  • NEW: Please check out the reviewed regatta information regarding entry cancellation and refunding policies.
  • Entry deadline is Wednesday, September 2, 2020, 6pm CET. The online registration is available from August 24, 2020, 9 am CET.
  • Due to the Corona situation, it will not be determined until the draw how the individual races will be distributed over the race days. The order of the advertised races will be maintained in the entry results and in the settlements. The races will either be distributed over four days (October 15 to 18), three days (October 16 to 18) or two days (October 17 to 18). Days not used for races can be used for training purposes
  • Between August 24 and September 2, 6pm CET, entries can be cancelled at any time via the MAX portal. Already paid entry fees will be refunded free of charge.
  • If the journey to the regatta venue or from the regatta venue to back to the home town is officially prohibited by the authorities, or if entries cannot be raced due to an officially ordered Corona-induced quarantine, the entered crews must be cancelled by the team manager via the MAX portal before October 14, at noon. If an official proof in German or English can be presented and the official prohibition or order was not known or obvious at the time of making the entries, the already paid regatta fees minus 5% will be refunded. Please note: If no proof can be presented or if for any other reason it is not possible to participate in the regatta, a refund is unfortunately not possible.
  • For cancellations after October 14, noon, the following applies: If a crew cannot or does not want to race, the crew must cancel the entry as soon as possible according to the general rules via the MAX portal. Out of fairness for other crews in the race and for crews who want to participate by late entry, the withdrawal should take place by 4pm CET on pre-race day. According to the usual regulations, there will not be a refund of the regatta fee.
  • At the entry deadline (or if reasons arise earlier) we will assess, considering the current Corona situation, whether the 2020 Euro Masters Regatta can be held with a specially coordinated hygiene concept. A clear prerequisite is that the official Corona restrictions by the German and Bavarian authorities allow such an event at that time and that the regatta is feasible under the then applicable hygiene regulations.
  • On the day after the entry deadline, all registrants will be informed whether the regatta can take place as advertised, whether we offer an alternative invitation to enter until September 9, 2020 with a reduced race order or whether we must cancel the regatta. Regardless of this, it is possible at any time between the registration deadline and the regatta date that we must cancel the regatta due to official regulations. In case of a cancellation between the registration deadline and the start of the regatta, participants will be refunded the regatta fees already paid less 5%.
  • All participants are therefore strongly advised to book their hotel and travel arrangements in a way that they can be cancelled at short notice. By registering for the Euro Masters Regatta, each participant acknowledges that Regatta München e.V. is released from any liability for damages, especially for travel and accommodation of the participants, and is not liable for any costs of the participants. This applies in particular in the event of a cancellation of the regatta, the exclusion of participants from a certain country or region who are particularly affected by the Corona pandemic, or persons with typical Corona symptoms, but also in the event of a change in the hygiene concept and/or a change in the announcement or a change in the order of the races, or even the cancellation of races for certain boat or age groups.
  • All participants undertake to comply with all regulations of the hygiene concept as well as the official infection prevention measures in force at the time of the event. Violation will result in immediate exclusion from the regatta.

Essential information for participants

Race schedule

You can find the complete race schedule for all race days here.

FISA Rules of Racing

The races shall be rowed according the FISA Rules of Racing and related bye-laws.

Eligibility

A rower may compete if he/she attains the age of 27 in 2020. The age you reach in 2020 determines which age category you are in.  

The age categories as defined by FISA in the Bye-Laws to Rule 32 will apply as follows:

Age category   Age category  
A 27 years (MA) H 70 years (AA)
B 36 years (AA) I 75 years (AA)
C 43 years (AA) J 80 years (AA)
D 50 years (AA) K 83 years (AA)
E 55 years (AA) L 86 years (AA)
F 60 years (AA) M 89 years (AA)
G 65 years (AA)    

MA – minimum age, AA – average age

Within an age category, a sorting by the year of birth is applied equivalent to the World Masters Regatta. The sorting by year of birth will be done at the draw considering all valid entries by the time of the draw. The sorting within an age category will be done backwards from the oldest to the youngest participant. Late entries that will come in after the draw will row in the heat with the youngest participants, not considering their year of birth. If scratches occur, the regatta committee reserves the right to depart from that rule.

You don’t look your age. Please make sure to bring an official ID document such as passport, ID card or driver’s licence with you to prove your age. At the Information Center, we will prepare an accreditation including a copy of your ID for you, so you can simply carry that accreditation.

At the entry deadline (or if reasons arise earlier) we will assess, considering the current Corona situation, whether the 2020 Euro Masters Regatta can be held with a specially coordinated hygiene concept. A clear prerequisite is that the official Corona restrictions by the German and Bavarian authorities allow such an event at that time and that the regatta is feasible under the then applicable hygiene regulations.

In case of a cancellation between the registration deadline and the start of the regatta, participants will be refunded the regatta fees already paid less 5%.

All participants are therefore strongly advised to book their hotel and travel arrangements in a way that they can be cancelled at short notice. By registering for the Euro Masters Regatta, each participant acknowledges that Regatta München e.V. is released from any liability for damages, especially for travel and accommodation of the participants, and is not liable for any costs of the participants.

A required medication has to be attested together with the relevant diagnoses and the agents applied – insofar as they are not banned, but notifiable by anti-doping regulations – by the attending doctor. A copy of the attestation shall be deposited before the competition in a sealed envelope at the regatta office. The envelope will only be opened in the presence of the rower and shall be collected upon completion of the regatta.

Health

Each competitor shall be responsible for his or her own health and fitness.

During the regatta the principle of mutual consideration applies in Corona times! Therefore, the hygiene concept of Regatta München has to be adhered to by every participant. This concept will be adapted according to the official requirements until the start of the regatta and will be published on our website and sent to the registrants after the entry deadline.

The regatta committee reserves the right to exclude a participant from the regatta immediately in case of violation of the hygiene concept.

Sightseeing – Munich and Upper Bavaria

Make the most of your rowing trip and discover Munich and the surrounding beautiful Bavarian pre-Alpine landscape!

 

Munich – tradition meets dynamics and creativity. It’s all in the mix!

 

It is the incomparable mixture of cosmopolitanism and tradition, of high-tech and down-to-earth, of innovation and charming serenity that makes Munich so attractive to tourists from all over the world. The Bavarian state capital with its 1.5 million inhabitants offers everything you would hope for from a perfect city trip: an extensive art and culture scene, unlimited sports and shopping opportunities, a lively bar and nightlife, a varied gastronomy and an excellent public transport network. At the same time, nature is just around the corner when you take a stroll through the English Garden, the Isar meadows, the parks of the castles or hop on a train to the near Alps and the Upper Bavarian lakes.

Munich enjoys an international reputation as an art and culture metropolis. Three top orchestras, major music festivals, outstanding opera and concert stages and an internationally renowned club scene stand for a wide range of music of all styles, from classical, jazz, rock and pop to the avant-garde. Munich offers over 50 museums and exhibition centres. A constantly growing world-class art area attracts art lovers from all over the world. In 2009, the Brandhorst Museum opened, which quickly developed into a magnet for the public and, with its renowned collection of modern art, complements the three Pinakotheken in a magnificent manner. The latest addition to the art area, the new house for the State Museum of Egyptian Art, opened its doors to visitors in June 2013. Since 2013 the Lenbachhaus presents itself to the public with its new extension building after its general renovation. The history and future of technology can be experienced up close in the Deutsches Museum, which has two branches in the city, the traffic centre on Theresienhöhe and the Schleißheim aircraft hangar in northern Munich. Anyone interested in automobiles and the successful combination of technology and design is heading for BMW Welt and the museum of the premium car manufacturer.

 

A deep insight into Munich’s history can be gained in the Munich City Museum with its permanent exhibition “Typical Munich”. A visit to the Wittelsbach Residence, the Wittelsbach City Palace, also provides information about the history of the residence city and the former Wittelsbach rule, which lasted more than 700 years. Even older is the neighbouring Alte Hof, the first seat of the Wittelsbacher, where the “Info Point” of the Bavarian Museums is located. A small multivision show in the museum introduces the history of the Wittelsbach dynasty. The world’s best-known member of the Bavarian royal family is undoubtedly the fairy-tale king Ludwig II, who was born in Nymphenburg Castle, the Wittelsbach summer residence in Munich.

 

Besides the rich culture of the city, the people of Munich love their sport. Whether tennis or ice hockey, swimming or rowing, marathons or cycling, golf or football – there are no limits to the enthusiasm for sport in the city during the 1972 Olympic Summer Games. Today, the Olympic Park and its stadiums are still used in many ways: for leisure sports, major sporting events, concerts, festivals or simply to relax in the greenery of the still spectacular tent roofs. With the Allianz Arena, Munich has one of the most modern and extraordinary stadium buildings in Europe. The outer skin and roofing of the stadium ring consist of thousands of diamond-shaped air cushions which glow in the club colours white and red at home matches of the FC Bayern München.
