First place went to the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and third place to Corvinus University of Budapest.

University rowing has a long tradition in many countries around the world, and Hungary has joined this tradition with the first ever University Regatta. Eight higher education institutions entered teams in the competition, with eight students in each team to represent their universities. The organizers regarded it as great success that so many young people are interested in this branch of sport. The event was characterized by excellent results and an incredibly good atmosphere.
