Dear RC Offshore Powerboat Enthusiasts,
Get ready for the ultimate regatta adventure – the first long-distance Rhine Regatta in Europe! Experience an unforgettable weekend full of adrenaline, friendship, and competition as your powerboats glide through the stunning landscape of the Rhine Valley, past historical castles, picturesque vineyards, and majestic cliffs.
Imagine steering your powerboat at full speed over the sparkling waves of the Rhine while your support boat follows closely behind. Feel the excitement as you compete with other teams in a thrilling race along the scenic riverbanks. The total distance of this breathtaking regatta is 50 kilometers.
This exciting event offers you the following highlights and details:
- Exclusive eligibility for RC Offshore Powerboats with a hull length between 200 cm and 399 cm.
- Deep-Vee and catamaran shapes are allowed, while hydroplanes and F1 powerboats are excluded.
- An unparalleled regatta weekend with technical inspection on Friday, training and qualification on Saturday, and the main regatta on Sunday.
- The regatta begins on Sunday morning at 10 am and takes you through the breathtaking Rhine landscape from Wiesbaden to Bingen and back, passing historical landmarks such as the Niederwalddenkmal, Biebrich Palace, and the idyllic villages of the Rhine Valley.
- Upon arrival in Bingen, the time will be paused while you refuel your models and perform minor repairs in the harbor. As soon as you leave the harbor, the time continues, and the regatta returns to Wiesbaden.
- The winner will be determined based on the shortest overall time for the entire route from Wiesbaden to Bingen and then from Bingen back to Wiesbaden. In the evening, there will be an award ceremony followed by a dinner and a closing party.
