My morning bike ride to the office had a surprise today ! Some kind of athletic event preparations by the sea. I stopped to take some photos and I see that there are rowing athletes getting ready. Apparently the World Rowing Costal Championships are held in Thessaloniki Greece between October 16-19
This was a nice surprise so as I know almost nothing about this event, I did some research to find out.
This is a new event that the city is organising for the first time – let’s hope it will become annual. It is organised by the Hellenic Rowing Federation and the Municipality of Thessaloniki. For Thessaloniki, sports are both a tradition and a perspective. 2014, the year during which Thessaloniki holds the title of the European Youth Capital, is the year that the city highlights its capabilities, its prospects and all its creative powers.
We are always happy to welcome new events in the city, especially those promoting sports and activities.
Enjoy the event !
