Filippi is Euro Masters premium partner 2018 and offers extensive boat rental

Munich, May 4, 2018 – 

Regatta München e.V. partners with Filippi, the Italian racing boat manufacturer, for the Euro Masters Regatta 2018. Filippi will be premium partner at the international regatta at the Olympic regatta course in Munich from July 26-29. The event will attract more than 2,500 rowers between 27 and 80+ years from 25 countries. In particular, the sponsorship agreement will be beneficial to all participants travelling to Munich from far way: Filippi will not only offer repair services for his customers but also an extensive boat rental at the regatta, eliminating the need to bring own boats.

“Filippi is a trusted brand amongst masters rowers. We hope that the boat rental will facilitate competing in Munich for all rowers who cannot bring own boats,” says Oliver Bettzieche, president of Regatta München e.V. Traditionally, master rowers get together once a year to compete at World Masters. Every fourth year, the regatta takes place in a non-European country. This year it will be in Sarasota, Florida/USA. The Euro Masters Regatta in Munich is both a performance benchmark for European athletes competing in Sarasota in September as well as an alternative for those athletes who do not want to travel overseas.

“Our goal is to provide professional rowers with high quality boats while giving them the opportunity to have a great time together. We are proud to be part of the Euro Masters Regatta 2018 in Munich. This is the best place to meet Masters from all over Europe,” says Maria Guerrazzi, responsible for Filippi Boat hire at master regattas.

Entries for the Euro Masters Regatta are open until July 4, 2018. Rental requests for singles, doubles, pairs, fours, quads and eights should reach Filippi preferably until June 30. Rental fees are Euro 40.- per race and seat, additional rent will have to be paid for practice sessions.
