ABOUT THE VENUE
Rowing has a long tradition in Germany. The first German club was established in 1836 in Hamburg. Crefelder Ruder-Club, the oldest sports-club in Krefeld, was founded in 1883. Until 1925 Krefeld was written "Crefeld". The rowing course Elfrather Lake is located in the north-eastern side of Krefeld. The lake was created from an abandoned gravel pit, which was filled with groundwater. The gravel was taken up in the 1970s for the construction of the A57 highway, which used the gravel pit as a place of central material supply. After the completion of the lake in the 1970s, it was developed to its current recreational area with many spacious lawns.
The first rowing regattas were held in the 1970s. Since then, many regattas has been hosted by Crefelder Ruder-Club and Regattaverein Niederrhein such as: International German Students Championships, German Sprint Championships, German National League.
