New events this year will be the pre-masters. A new category for rowers between 22 and 32 years old. This event makes it possible to start the competition with a team that is not all masters. Also, teams that are not from one rowing club can register for this event.
Other new events are the mixed crews (m/f). This is possible in the Open events of the masters 8+, 8* and 4*. For the Mix 8+ and 4* events a 50/50 male vs. female split is required.
