The competition consists of two parts:

1 Race of the university eights from Croatia and abroad

2 Legends’ Race between the legends of Oxford, Cambridge and Split

If this whole region has a common characteristic, it is the simple and goodhearted sincerity of the people, their peaceable yet boisterous nature, the unaffected desire to present their guest with the very best of everything. You cannot pack it in your suitcase when you return home, but it will remain in your soul until you visit once again. International rowing regatta Sveti Duje is an event featuring eights from Croatian and international universities.
