We warmly congratulate all the winners and prize-winners of the past 18th Concrete Canoe Regatta. The winners of the sporting competition, the HTWK Leipzig, who took first place in both the women's and men's competition; on the other podium places, Leibniz Uni Hannover (second place) and Bauhaus-Uni Weimar (third place) in the women's competition and Bauhaus-Uni Weimar, who completed the podium in the men's competition with both boats.
Congratulations to the University of Hanover for winning the open class with their Guelph carriage, pulled by the team "Amadeus" and "Sabrina".
No less important are the prizes for the construction of the boats. Here our congratulations go to Frankfurt UAS for the construction prize; Berlin University of Applied Sciences for the design prize and ETH Zurich for the sustainability prize.
Our great respect goes to the international teams, first and foremost to the team with the prize for the most adventurous, because longest journey, the team from Balıkesir University. Orada olduğun için teşekkür ederim. But we were also very happy about the teams from Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria.
Now that the last prize, the Social Media Prize, has also been awarded, we would like to congratulate the winners, the Bauhaus University Weimar.
We would like to thank all those who make this event possible: The event team, the countless helpers from the reception, to the kitchen, jury, moderator and security, to all those whose work you didn't notice behind the scenes. Special thanks go to Sascha Steinbach, who as usual manages to capture and preserve memories with his perfect photos. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors once again, without whom the construction of the canoes and the holding of the regatta would not have been possible. As a representative of the city of Brandenburg an der Havel, we had the pleasure of welcoming Ms Alexandra Adel, who also deserves our sincere thanks. Last but not least, we would like to thank all those without whom the regatta site would look quite empty, the students of the various institutions, through whom the canoes take shape in the first place.
We are already looking forward to the next regatta in two years' time and perhaps we will see some of the students earlier at the Betoncanoerace in the Netherlands next year or at the next construction faculty conference in autumn.
Develop and test the concrete mix, select the reinforcement and calculate the forces and stresses that occur.
Design the shape of the canoe and consequently design the shape and type of formwork, as well as build the formwork.
In times of raw material shortages and rising prices, it is all the more necessary to convince sponsors in order to be able to realise the concrete canoe project.
The marketing team is in charge of the social media and website, has designed the logo and is responsible for the T-shirt, which is yet to be unveiled at the regatta ...
