On July 20, 2014, St. Elijah day, the first Metković Rowboat race Cup was held, where nine male and two women's naval crews participated.

The  program is designed in two parts. In the first part, a qualification race is run on the 4km track where all the teams are joined together. The start and finish of the race are under the bridge in Metković, and the turn is about two kilometers downstream of the bridge, following the route of the promenade along the Neretva River. In the second part of the competition there are eight first-placed teams who decide the winner with a system of competitions in direct duels on a 400m track.
