Bled to host 2021 & 2022 Euro Masters Regatta
Bled – a jewel among the Alps welcomes you to have
an amazing masters rowing experience!
The 2021 Euro Masters Regatta will not take place in Munich: As the Olympic Regatta Centre is about to be prepared for the European Championships, Regatta München e.V. has moved the popular Masters event to Bled. The regatta will take place from 17 to 20 June 2021. The Masters-tried-and-tested organizing 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. More information will be available soon on the website www.regatta.de and www.bledrowing.com
“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 2015 and 2010.
In 2022, the Euro Masters Regatta will again take place in Bled from June 16 to 19, 2022.
