At the European Championships Munich 2022 in August, Filippi boats shone with a total of 15 gold medals, and this July, the Italian boat builder will again show a strong presence at the Olympic Regatta Centre
Munich – 21 March 2023. Regatta München e.V. has named Ruderwerkstatt and the Italian boat builder Filippi as Platinum Premium Partner for the 2023 Euro Masters Regatta. The international regatta will attract around 3,000 rowers from up to 40 countries aged between 27 and over 90 to the Olympic Regatta Centre in Munich from 27 to 30 July. A big advantage, especially for participants who must travel a long way: Filippi, together with Ruderwerkstatt, not only offers service for boats, but also provides boat rental at the regatta, so that it is not necessary to transport the boats yourself.
“Filippi is considered a top brand in the Masters community. With the boat rental, we enable Masters to compete in Munich who do not bring their own boats,” says Oliver Bettzieche, President of Regatta München e.V. Traditionally, the rowing world of the over 27s meets once a year for the World Masters. However, this regatta takes place every four years outside Europe and this year in Tshwane, South Africa. The Euro Masters Regatta in Munich is therefore both an assessment for European athletes before their start at the World Masters in September and an alternative for those who cannot or do not want to travel to South Africa.
“Our goal is to provide Masters with our high-quality boats and a convincing service according to a new competent and friendly concept, while giving them the opportunity to have a wonderful time together. We are proud to be part of the 2023 Euro Masters Regatta in Munich. This is the best place to meet Masters from all over Europe and the world,” says Daniel Riechmann, Managing Director of Ruderwerkstatt.
Crews can enter for their events until 28 June 2023. If possible, Filippi should also receive boat rental requests by 28 June (via the online entry portal). The cost is 50 Euro per race and seat, and the same price for additional training sessions.
Further details and the boat rental will soon be available online at https://www.euromastersregatta.com/.
