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.
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.
