Dutch Masters Open (Rowing) 2014

The second Dutch Masters Open regatta (DMO) will take place on 14 and 15 June 2014. This year we expect even more crews from both inside and outside the Netherlands to take part. Once again the DMO will be organised by Rijnland, De Maas and Breda rowing clubs. Most races will be rowed side by side over 1000m on the Willem-Alexander Course near Rotterdam. Masters will be able to start in all boat types and all master categories. If more than one type and/or category starts in the same heat, starting time intervals will be used. In effect this means that older crews and slower boat types will be given a head start.

This year the DMO has a number of new race categories. As a result, racing will take place from early morning to late afternoon on both days.
