Coupe de La Jeunesse

The Coupe de la Jeunesse, is an international rowing regatta rowed over 2,000 m every year. It was founded in 1985 and is open to rowers who are 18 or under by the end of the current calendar year. It is a two-day team event, with points awarded to nations based on finishing position in each category. As a result a strong overall team is required to take overall victory in the Coupe, and the event has only ever been won by Great Britain (10 wins), France (8 wins), and Italy (6 wins).

Each category is raced separately on the first and second day of the regatta, allowing different Coupe de la Jeunesse event winners on each day. Many countries use this regatta as a destination for athletes who do not reach the standard required for the Junior World Championships.

In 2009, it will be the 25th edition of this event organised by Le Club d'Aviron de Vichy (FRANCE).

In 2011 the Coupe will be held in Ottensheim near Linz, Austria from 29th until 31st of July, and is organised by the Wassersportverein Ottensheim.
