A total of 16 teams are competing this time. Against the two firmly established teams, the only mixed team also wants to win: anita stobel and robert erk represent the parish council and start dressed as devils. Besides anita stobel, two female teams fight against the male dominance: marie bebler and susanne pflaum enter the race as team rockelein I, while antonia kern and caroline peetz form team rockelein II. The trainees of the kaspar rockelein company are extremely proud to represent the company colors.

The team "thefi com" wants to counteract this, reiner stumpf and otto schobert, as typists in old-fashioned suits and with briefcases, win not only for the company's honor.

Professionally moderated by andreas eiermann and accompanied by the cheers of the spectators, the boats go to the starting line. Of course, everyone had only one goal – to win a trophy and prize money. Already at the start not every team succeeds in transporting the boats safely into the water. It is an effort for everyone to paddle 30 meters to the buoy and back using only their hands. The spectators commented enthusiastically on every run, overturned boats and the falls into the water caused a lot of amusement.

After an exciting final, alexander groh and michael mitschker are once again on the winner's podium. Their permanent rivals gunter stobel and helmut gunzelmann have to admit defeat once again.
