Attention Masters: Get your calendars out and save the date! Euro Masters Regatta 2020 is confirmed to take place from July 17th to 19th, 2020 at the Olympic Regatta Course in Munich-Oberschleißheim. From eights to singles, all events and age groups will compete for medals again on the 1000-metre course under the expected fair conditions.
“We are very excited to welcome the international Masters community back to Munich”, says Oliver Bettzieche, CEO of Regatta München e.V., the organiser of the Euro Masters Regatta. “We have planned a lot of new things and will build on what has been tried and tested. The original will be even better.”
Like in previous events, Regatta München again expects more than 2,000 rowers from all over the world. In 2018, Russia, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark and France were represented. But athletes also travelled to Munich from as far as the USA, Canada, Argentina, Hong Kong and Japan. To facilitate racing for athletes from all over the world, there will be a boat rental again. In terms of accommodation, there will be camping sites open along the course as well as special offers to be booked through Hotel Verbund Munich. Updates will be published continuously here on the website and on Facebook.
In addition to perfect organization on the water, the organizers are already fine-tuning the concept on land: the culinary offer will again be regional and suitable for athletes, without losing sight of the fun of a cool beer or a delicious ice cream. At the same time, the Regatta Munich team is working on new ideas for more environmental protection and an unforgettable Masters Party on 18 July.
Another novelty is that the Bavarian Rowing Championships will be integrated into the Euro Masters Regatta for the first time. In special racing blocks, which are only open to Bavarian clubs, the state champions 2020 will be determined.
All regatta information for Euro Masters Regatta 2020 and the Bavarian Rowing Championships 2020 will be published on the Regatta Munich website as soon as they become available.
