Riverboat Trials

Rhein-Club Basel

Tuesday, 28 May

With the Rhein running through Basel, it is no surprise that there are many boating clubs in the region that offer different types of rowing activities. The Rhein-Club Basel employs the traditional-style riverboats called Weidlinge, whose crews consist of several stand-up paddlers as well as one person who uses a long wooden rod with a forked metal end to navigate the boats over the rocky river bottom. If you have ever been curious about these boats and would like to give it a try, the Rhein-Club Basel is hosting a free trial (Schnuppertraining) for people ages 7-70 on this evening. You just need to bring sports clothes and (if available) knee protectors. Meeting place is at the boat house at Klingentalgraben 4-6 in Basel (near Kaserne); please register at schnuppertraining@rcbasel.ch.
