Rowing Contest
20.5. 12:00-18:00
VANHANKAUPUNGIN LAHTI
What would a cultural happening be without a sport event?

On Sunday the 20th of May, MoA07 organizes an ark rowing race in the footsteps of old universities. The helmsman is shouting the pace for the rowers and the environment is filled with intensive feeling of competition in the air.

There will be music, a workshop for the children and in the afternoon there will be a more unofficial race for rubber boats, where it’s all about the style.

Saunabus will be present for the whole day and even if you’re not racing you can share the steamy feeling by jumping in to the sauna’s bench.
