The Rotsee

The development at Rotsee

In order to ensure rowing in Lucerne also has a strong future, in recent years the rowing infrastructure has been modernized in line with the unique natural and recreational area on the Rotsee with a budget of CHF 16 million. The LUCERNE REGATTA ASSOCIATION and the LUCERNE REGATTA guarantee first-class rowing infrastructure in the middle of a nature reserve and recreation area.

The development on the Rotsee has not escaped the World Rowing Federation FISA. The FISA then awarded the European Rowing Championships 2019 at Lucerne. (May 31 – June 2, 2019)

VOLUNTEERS

WANT TO BE A PART OF THE
EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS?
THEN JOIN US AND BECOME A VOLUNTEER!

You’ll find everything you need to know on this page.
Major sporting competitions like the Lucerne Regatta are only possible with you. Join the team and you’ll see behind the scenes of one of the world’s biggest rowing regattas, and one of Switzerland’s classic events. You don’t have to be a rowing expert. Our volunteers’ backgrounds are as varied as the work on offer – from A for “Athletes’ Service” to Z for “Zielturm”, our brand new finishing tower.

Most of the jobs for younger volunteers (ages 12-16) start with A or B – Athletes and Boats. You might find yourself helping olympic champions on the pontoons, or holding the stern of their boat at the start. But if you’re more the indoor type, don’t worry! There‘s lots to do in the photocopying room, the Regatta Office, Lost&Found or the Mediacenter. Wherever you are, you get food, staff kit and ten francs pocket money per half-day.
Teenagers and adults tend to work in the Mediacenter, Results Service, Ticketing or Catering. Food, kit and an invitation to the annual Volunteers’ Party are your package in return.
