While big parts of continental Europe had record high temperature, low temperature and heavy day rain Saturday and strong headwind Sunday was not the most optimal conditions for a summer regatta. However, all participating rowing teams conquered the elements smoothly and the 2022 Open Nordic Rowing Championship in Tampere Finland became a successful regatta. A big complement to the Finnish Organizers for setting the frame for fairness and inter-nordic friendship between the rowers.
The Nordic Cup which is an ongoing competition among the Nordic Federations was this time won by Denmark with Norway as runners up followed by Sweden and Finland. (more news to follow)
Remember to sign up for the Tampere International Regatta and the Open Nordic Rowing Championship which will take place in Tampere, Finland June 18-19, 2022. The Open Nordic Rowing Championship is open both for Junior and Senior rowers.

The Finnish rower Joel Naukkarinen won a bronze medal in the mens open 2000 meter class at the World Rowing Indoor Championship which took place from 25-26 February 2022.
The open men’s 2000m was one of the highlight events and the race saw last year’s indoor champion Ward Lemmelijn of Belgium come out on top again. Lemmelijn trailed Russia’s Alexander Vyazovkin for the majority of the race, and in an epic sprint to the line overtook him just before the finish, to the delight of his supporters in Belgium. He fell just short of the magic sub 5:40 mark when he finished in a time of 5:41.7, ahead of Vyazovkin with Joel Naukkarinen of Finland in third. Congratulation to Joel Naukkarinen.
