Saturday September 24 sees the 50th Tour du Léman à l’Aviron. A special edition with a festive flavour. Organized by the Société Nautique de Genève, the Tour is an extraordinary 160-kilometre event, with no stopovers or assistance.

Geneva, Monday June 27, 2022 – Société Nautique de Genève will host the 50th edition of the Tour du Léman à l’Aviron from September 23 to 25. Save the date for this anniversary, which promises to be a great party.

“It’s very satisfying to have been able to perpetuate the work of the SNG’s rowing section and volunteers over 50 years,” says Stéphane Trachsler, President of the Organizing Committee. ” We’ve always been able to organize the Tour, even in difficult times. It’s all in a day’s work for all the volunteers. The loyalty of the participants is also an important factor, for an effort that corresponds to about four marathons in terms of time. .

Some fifteen crews, including several international teams, have already confirmed their participation. Competitors will meet on Friday at 7pm for the weather forecast. The start will be given on Saturday morning at 8am. Arrivals are highly dependent on weather conditions, and will take place between late afternoon and Sunday morning.

Alongside the main race, the Défi Inter-Entreprise will take place again this year. The launch is scheduled for Saturday at 10am, with several amateur teams competing near the Société Nautique de Genève.

The route of the Tour remains the same (to be confirmed depending on weather conditions): the race will start in Geneva and run along the Swiss coast, passing through Versoix, Nyon, Rolle, Morges, Lausanne, Montreux, Villeneuve, Le Bouveret before returning along the French coast to Evian, Thonon, Sciez and Yvoire.
