Local rowers to take part in German Regatta.
Two Maltese U-23 rowers are about to become the first local rowing crew to take part in a German regatta.
Romario Brignone and Maximillian Mamo from Klabb Regatta Bormla will be flying to Berlin next week for their second training camp at a Leipzig-based rowing academy. The training will be a continuation of last years Maltese-German Rowing Project.
The project introduced the two champion kajjikk rowers to Olympic-style rowing in a double skulling boat. They will now go a step further and take part in the Ratzeburg International Regatta on 4 and 5 June.
Ratzeburg, with its DRV-Rowing Academy, is often considered to be the Mecca of German rowing.
As in 2015, the project is being organised by former Klabb Regatta Bormla president Stephen Paris and Joe Speck from ARVL. Daniel Brüderle will again be in charge of coaching.
The 2016 event is officially supported by Deutscher Ruderverband (DRV) and SPORT MALTA as well as the Deutsch-Maltesische Gesellschaft (Germany), Prof. Ulrich Hartmann (Instiute of Training Science Leipzig University) and the Maltese Honorary Consul for Saxony.
Malta joined the International Rowing Federation (FISA) in Autumn 2015.
