The International Budapest Cup Regatta, is the only international head regatta of Hungary. Besides high performance competitors, who are training for international level, master teams represent the greatest number at the starting line. University and junior teams compete also in the 3.6 km race.

Main event of the day: the Eights

The greatest of all rowing boats used for flat water racing is the coxed eight. We love it! It give the purest sensation of rowing when the team is moving in one direction. The event is organised for all categories, from U17 to masters categories, also for universities.

Enter in the men’s, women’s or the mixed category.

Only for ladies: the coxless Quadrupple sculls

Women can enter besides the eight also in the quadrupple sculls. The event was first organised to attract women teams to the BPC, as generally less women rowed, to make a suitable option for those who cannot find a women or mixed eight.

Today it is an event for those who want to participate, but don’t want to enter the eights, or row only scull boats.

For the toughest rowers: the Singles

In 2022 we organised the head race also for men and women singles scullers. As the Danube is hard to navigate with current and as in the early season everybody is a bit rusty, the event is for the thoughest rowers. One category for men and one for women, get ready for a uniqe experience.

The possible entry numbers are limited to 30 entries total.

Rowing together: Ergometer Race for Special Athletes

For almost two decades the Danubius National Boating Club is partnering with the Hungarian Down Foundation and organises rowing sessions for the athletes in the care of the Foundation.

As part of the Budapest Cup Regatta top rowing athletes row together a 250m ergometer race in pairs with athletes of the Down Foundation. Inclusivity is part of the event.
