The 2021 Euro Masters Regatta will not take place in Munich: As the Olympic Regatta Center is about to be prepared for the European Championships, Regatta München e.V. moves the popular Masters event to Bled. The regatta will take place from June 17 to 20, 2021. The Masters-proven organization team in Slovenia will work closely with Regatta München and conjure up the well-known Euro Masters Regatta spirit on and around Lake Bled. Regatta München will be on site as host.
“Over the next 24 months, the City of Munich will prepare its sports facilities for the multi-sport event European Championships 2022. This includes the Olympic Regatta Center, the venue for the rowing and canoe sprint competitions. In 2021, preparations are pending, so we won’t be able to offer all the regattas as usual”, explains Oliver Bettzieche, President of Regatta München e.V. “That’s why we are going on tour with the Euro Masters Regatta. Despite the change of location, we will make sure that the Masters community will again experience the typical Euro Master Regatta they’ve come to expect. Therefore, we will work on site in Bled and offer the usual service around the regatta. This ranges from our registration portal over a well-organized boat rental to the Masters Party. We are very much looking forward to the new partnership.”
“We are very pleased to co-host the 2021 Euro Masters Regatta,” says Jernej Slivnik, co-Executive Director of Bled Rowing OC. “We share Regatta München’s passion for organizing attractive rowing events with fair racing, prompting this unique cooperation in the world of rowing. When two renowned regatta organizers join forces, the result will certainly be another unforgettable event for the Masters community on Lake Bled in 2021 and 2022.”
Bled previously hosted the 1986 and 1995 World Rowing Masters Regatta, adding the most successful one in 2017 with a record breaking 4,700 participants and over 900 races. Amazing landscape and fair rowing conditions contributed to the recent successful events – the 2011 World Rowing Championships and World Rowing Cups in 2010 and 2015.
In 2022, the Euro Masters Regatta will again take place in Bled from June 16 to 19, 2022. Further information about the announcement will be continuously published on the Regatta München website.
