Strijen, 5 juni 2021
Hurrah! The Westelijke Regatta/NK Groot Junioren will take place in the weekend of 19 & 20 June 2021. The organisation has worked hard to provide a regatta with as much as possible within the current COVID-regulations and tried to limit concessions where possible.
Two groups of crews will be able to start the Westelijke Regatta/NK Groot Junioren 2021 this year, being:
- Junioren wedstrijdroeiers voor het NK Groot Junioren, met in dezelfde categorie de 1x voor junioren-16 en -18‡. De junioren-16 1x velden zullen tevens als NK worden verroeid.
- Competition junior crews, aimed at crews not (yet) participating in national championships.
‡ Een belangrijke kanttekening is dat 18 jarigen nog not participate unfortunately. The organisation will have to cancel crews from the entries, if they contain a participant of 18 years or older. We have expanded the junior competition fields. Junior professional crews are able to start at a field over both days. Exact information is available at the entries page and the schedule.
The necessity and eventual implementation of a test before entering the enclosure is currently part of discussion; we hope to provide further clarity very soon, at our COVID-pages. Spectators are unfortunately still not allowed at the enclosure, as the NK Groot Junioren does not have a 'topsport' designation by the NOC*NSF (Dutch olympic committee).
