20th International Rowing Regatta Sveti Duje

Split 13 – 15 May 2022

The competition consists of two parts:

1 Race of the university eights from Croatia and abroad

2 Legends’ Race between the legends of Oxford, Cambridge and Split

If this whole region has a common characteristic, it is the simple and goodhearted sincerity of the people, their peaceable yet boisterous nature, the unaffected desire to present their guest with the very best of everything. You cannot pack it in your suitcase when you return home, but it will remain in your soul until you visit once again. International rowing regatta Sveti Duje is an event featuring eights from Croatian and international universities.

University Eights Races 8+

University Eights Races take place at the 1000m long racing course in Spinut, with an increasing number of participating teams every year. The increase culminated in the past ten years due to the participation of the best known names in university rowing, the Oxford and Cambridge Blue Boats.

Racing Rules

The regatta is conducted in accordance with the rules of FISA, and the Split University’s Regulations for Organization of Sports Events. Any student in possession of a student identity card has the right to compete. The legends are exempt from this rule. The higher age limit is 29 years. The coxswains can be of any gender, student status or age.

Legends Race Legends

Race takes place in the city harbor on a 220m long course, whereby the legends of Split are competing against the legends of Oxford and Cambridge – the alumni that have rowed in the legendary Boat Race on river Thames in the past 15 years and that have won the brightest Olympic and World Championships medals.
