Due to delay in the construction work of the Elite Sport Centre of the German Canoe Federation in Duisburg, the city of Duisburg has cancelled the International Wedau Regatta 2018.

A news report on this is available in german at the WAZ.

During 2016 and 2017, the boat storage Building will be completely reconstructed. Because of these building activities, several Events were shift and unfortunately, the date for the International Wedau Regatta 2016 is blocked by the Paralympic World Championships, the olympic qualification Regatta for europe and the World Cup of the International Canoe Federation. 

As the European Rowing Championships will take place in the same month in Brandenburg, no other regatta venue is capable of organising an international regatta in Germany.

So, the next International Wedau Regatta will take place on May 19/20, 2018.
