Hellenic Rowing Federation president
Τhe rowing course of Ioannina, although the first one in Greece until 2004, has not hosted major international event for long. However, the city has not forgotten its history and its great potential and therefore the Epirus Prefecture along with the Municipality of Ioannina pioneered to make a new start for hosting events in this venue. Having by their side the Greek Rowing Federation, the Deputy Ministry of Sports, the PEAKI (manager of the facilities) and the Nautical Club of Ioannina as main partners, they have mutually decided and applied for the organization of the European Rowing Under 23 Championships in 2019.
The European Rowing Federations entrusted us, and today that we have already undertaken the responsibility of this event, we have all agreed to provide a successful organization and fair racing conditions as well as offer the participants the opportunity to learn about the history of the city and enjoy the incredible beauty of its surrounding nature.
By our side, we have the Hotel Association of Ioannina, a large group of volunteers who will meet the great needs of the organization and people with knowledge, skills, and influence, capable to manage any existing issue or problems that may arise during the event.
The time of this event is approaching and we have all opened a big and warm hug to welcome all participating European Young Rowers and their Federations!
