FISA World Rowing Masters Regatta

  • Hosted By St. Catharines World Rowing

The first World Rowing Masters Regatta held in Vienna in 1973 was deemed a test event. Attracting about 700 entries from 10 countries it surprised many by its success, and the regatta has grown exponentially ever since. In 2008, 1,500 boats from 38 countries took part.

The uniqueness of each venue often with fascinating cultural and historical sites adds to the appeal for competitors. Discovering a new place or re-visiting a known one, all the while competing in a favourite sport, is a lot of fun. Past venues include Adelaide, Amsterdam, Budapest, Heidelberg, Miami, Prague, Vienna, Seville, Princeton.
