After the successful debut of the wienereiner #1 and many requests, a new discipline was added to the programme of 2012. On August 5th 2012, the wienerachter #1 introduced the supreme discipline of rowing to the viennautica weekend.

The fastest muscle powered water vehicles, i.e. eights, provide gripping head to head races and spectacular images as they speed down the Donaukanal on the day after the wienereiner.

wienerachter is part of the regatta series CAPITAL CUP on long distance tracks for eights in the cities Budapest, Zagreb, Prague and Vienna.
