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).
