An initiative to bring together rowers from the Danube region and beyond while promoting the 8+ rowing boatclass.
The Budapest Cup Regatta is "THE" major rowing event in Budapest during the year and the only head type regatta for eights in Hungary. It is the 2nd stage of the Capital Cup Regatta series. The Budapest Cup attracted over 170 boats and more than 1600 rowers from 12 countries to the capital of Hungary since its introduction to the Count Széchenyi István Memorial Regatta in 2011.
Today the Budapest Cup Regatta is the outstanding event in the Hungarian and Central European rowing calendar with big success among top, master and junior rowing teams from all over the region. The start of the rowing course is in the small stream next to the Óbuda Island and leads the teams onto the Big Danube on the Buda side of the Margaret Island, into the well-known heart of Budapest.
Our aim is to give rowers a unique feeling of international rowing, where athletes from every level compete. We aim to utilize all the human and asset capital of the Hungarian rowing scene and connect it with the neighboring countries rowing communities.
