TOS is a proud sponsor of the Maasrace, a famous rowing race that takes place Saturday, September 8th during the World Port Days in Rotterdam. The Maasrace is unique in longboat racing since it is the only race of the year where you can watch 39 longboats take off simultaneously from the starting line. This spectacle out on the water, along with the hustle and bustle of the World Port Days, is not to be missed!
START: 12.45 hours
The starting line is just east of the Erasmus Bridge, and so you’ll have a great view from the bridge. The longboats row eastwards over the Maas, just past the Van Brienenoord Bridge before turning around and finishing at the Boerengatbrug. The total distance covered in the race is approximately eighteen kilometres.
Each year TOS sponsors exciting events in the maritime sector. The Maasrace is only one of them!
