A.G.S.R. Gyas from Groningen has won the 34th eleven cities rowing marathon. In a time of 16:52 hours, the team reached the finish line in Leeuwarden and set a track record (16:59 hour since 2012). It was a close finish, with a difference of 15 minutes the German team Cool Runnings came in second. A small difference on the 210 kilometer route. Winner of the mix field was the team of the organizing LRV Wetterwille from Leeuwarden in a time of 18:01 hour.
The results of all 107 teams are here.
The weather forecast indicates wind from the southwest. This causes waves on the lakes. Ensure that experienced rowers cross the lakes.
Further information is provided during the captains meeting.

Below you will find the renewed route for the boat trips during the Eleven Cities Rowing Marathon.
When you arrive from the west (Aldlansdyk)
Take the boat wagon to Peugeot garage Auto Haaima. Drive straight ahead and turn left. Then turn right (Avondsterweg). Report here to the available traffic controllers. They will take you to the area where the boats can be unloaded.
When you arrive from the north (Anne Vondelingweg)
Turn left at the traffic lights into the Planetenlaan. Then turn right at the Technische Unie. Then turn right behind the Mazzelshop and the Praxis along and turn off at the Avondsterweg. Report to the available traffic controllers here. These will take you to the area where the boats can be unloaded.
Make sure that you unload the boat quickly, so that you stop or obstruct other teams as little as possible. After unloading, continue the route to leave the empty boat wagon at the designated area behind the lucky shop. See the map and follow the instructions of the traffic controllers.
Then park your car at the Technical Union or on the lawn next to Auto Haaima.
The village of Oudkerk is located on the route from Dokkum to Leeuwarden. Many people change there team after the bridge. To guarantee a good passage of the regular buses, it is forbidden to park your car between the bridge and the next bend to the left in the Van Sminiaweg. Please do follow the instructions of the traffic controllers!
Now in the Playstore! A new Android app for track and trace, named “Tourmonitor Tracker”, is finalised. The application is available. From now you can install it yourself and connect it to your team.
Een aantal belangrijke tips en eisen die de tocht gemakkelijker en veiliger maken.
Safety first: bring more than one bailer!
To further challenge the teams in the Open Category, and to break the track record after so many years, the team that shines the current record of 16.59 hours can look forward to € 600. The cash prize has been made proportionally available by the ERM and Roeiwerf Wiersma.
This is a doubling of the amount that was made available for the first time in 2017. Appointment is that the cash prize can rise to a maximum of 1000 euri. As mentioned, the ERM wants to strengthen the competition field in the coming years. In line with this, this year, for the first time, a time limit has been set for participation in the Open Category, which will gradually be sharpened.
The first bridge in Dokkum (the Ee bridge) in and out going boats passing each other under the bridge. Keep as much starboard as possible!
The Ee bridge is a long, narrow and low bridge where boats can only pass each other ‘slipping’. The city outgoing boats have priority over incoming boats. If necessary the jury will stop the incoming boats in front of the bridge in case of much boats, until the passage is safe again.
On the route Workum – Bolsward in the village Parrega is a very low bridge. Make sure you lie down in the boat!
We ask your attention to pay attention to this message.
Last month we, as the organization of the ERM, came into contact with the wonderful initiative: KikaRow. They told us that cancer is still the most common cause of death, due to illness, amongst children. The survival rate of these children can be increased faster by concentrating care, research and education in one location. This will be realized in the Princess Maxima Centre (Utrecht)!
The goal of KikaRow is to raise €500,000! This spring they will start and row 1400km, past 60 rowing clubs, through the Netherlands: ‘Rondje NL’. The start is at Michiel de Ruyter Uithoornse Roei- en Kanovereniging (Uithoorn). In 14 weekends they will row from club to club. What makes this journey special is that the boat is also manned by former child cancer patients (Kika rowers) and/or their family, friends. Rowing clubs throughout the country will teach the Kika rowers how to row under the guidance of experienced rowers!
As the organization of the ERM, we want to commit ourselves this year to this wonderful and valuable initiative. During the ERM (May 31st & June 1st) there will be collectibles to donate so we can contribute together to this great goal!
Help and support this initiative so that all of us can eradicate childhood cancer!
Sebastiaan van Stam (rower by Roeivereniging de Kop from Schagen) made some beautiful pictures during the marathon at Leeuwarden (start) and in Dokkum. Watch them here and if you like a picture you can order it.
Tom Goossens made also some pictures on behalf of Touristinfo Woudsend, you can find the pictures here. You can also order them in a bigger format, so take a look.
At night everyone is a sleep. Please be quiet between 12 PM and 8 AM.

Teams who register for the ‘Open Category’ must finish within 3 hours after the first team in this field. If not: unfortunately no Elfstedenkruisje.
We adjust the contestrules stp by step, with the aim of gettig thet fast teams to start and finish closer together. In recent years we have already made a distinction in a competitionfield and a performancefield.
This year we are going to make another change in the ‘Open Category’. Teams who register for this category must now finish within three hours of the first team in this field. Finish you later, then you end up out of time and the rowers of your team don’t get an Efstedenkruisje!
Just like last year it isn’t possible to camp on the island opposite LRV Wetterwille. Of course there are plenty of other options in the area. Here are some tips:
(just behind LRV Wetterwille)
(about 6.5 km north of LRV Wetterwille)
(about 6 km east of LRV Wetterwille)
(about 13 km west of LRV Wetterwille)
(about 6 km of Leeuwarden)
You can find the results of the elfstedenroeimarathon here.
After publication, the finish time of nine teams appeared to be incorrect. Two captains attended to this. Due to power outage, the electronic time observation did not work and we returned to the manually clocked finish time. This time was not yet corrected for the start time of relevant teams. That has now been done and processed in the results. It involved the teams with start number: 12, 27, 51, 52, 55, 94, 95, 101 and 102. The time correction is 3:03; 7:05; 14:40; 15:11; 25:42; 25:52; 27:27 and 27:44 minutes.
De ERM is bij uitstek een roeiwedstrijd die zich leent voor mooie beelden. Dat hebben we de afgelopen jaren ook kunnen zien dankzij de bijdrage van een aantal enthousiaste fotografen en filmers onderweg.
Bij deze doen wij graag opnieuw een oproep om de tocht vast te leggen. Het liefste wat verspreid in tijd en trajecten. Meld je aan dan ontvang je van ons een korte instructie. Reiskosten worden vergoed.
Je krijgt van ons de inloggegevens om je beeldmateriaal zelf te uploaden naar de ERM website. De beste (staande) foto wordt komend jaar voor de nieuwe poster gebruikt. De beste filmpjes krijgen blijvend een plaats op het ERM-youtubekanaal.
We zien jullie reacties graag tegemoet.
Hoe mooi is dit?! Er staat een live-feed van instagram op onze homepage. Volg ons via /elfstedenroeien
Adresseer en upload foto’s en video’s tijdens de tocht voor een gave livefeed!
Al het moois is voor iedereen vindbaar! De beste shots maken kans om volgend jaar op onze poster te prijken of gebruikt te worden voor pr.
Below, we address only those issues where there is improvement to catch up. This is made up of ‘Location, organization and recognition “and” Safety & match’. On the Eleven rowing marathon in 2017!
Location, organization and recognition
To begin, we will renew our website; we make our website more contemporary and informative, so that rowers can quickly find what they want to know. A first version, we can now see and it is beautiful …
Regarding the location indicated, that we must do something about the signs, both for the car and boat traffic as the rowers on our premises.
For strangers is not enough clear where they must report to the secretariat. Therefore, we will next year increase the visibility of organizers and volunteers of the ERM, so visibly who can answer any questions.
Security & Contest
Allowing smooth and fast running of the boat inspection every year again discussed. We have already taken several steps, including identifiable jackets for the judges of boats.
We’re going to do this differently. The past two years we divided the boats judges on the basis of the start numbers. This meant that both the judges and the rowers to each other were looking for boat inspection. Coming ERM we enter the area where the boats are defining in equal parts and we assign the parts to the jurors. We hope to make a correct work!
Given the weather conditions, there were few problems during the ERM in 2016. Returning sticking point is the passage of the bridges at Dokkum. Next year we want to pay special attention to this.
