On July 1st the annual “Row Against Cancer” regatta took place on the Rhein, right in front of the Mainz Rowing Club. Overall, 76 teams grouped into three divisions (women, mixed and men) registered for this year’s race. Additionally, carnival clubs from Mainz competed in the exclusive “Meenzer Narren Cup”. TRON participated in the regatta for the first time back in 2011. This year, we started with two teams: “Game of TRONs” and “TRONtanic”, both in the men’s division.
Our teams rowed their way to the semi-finals and finished ninth place overall out of 29 competitors. Congratulation to the winners, “Friends of kkm” starting for the “Katholisches Krankenhaus Mainz” of the men’s division, as well as the super final, where the winners of all three divisions raced each other. Our thanks go to all participants, the Mainz Rowing Club for organizing the event and the training sessions as well as TRON’s management for supporting us with the starting fee, which doubles as a donation to the cancer foundation “Stiftung Leben mit Krebs“.
