ORGANISING COMMITTEE

Organising a rowing event from the magnitude of a world championship requires teamwork, dedication and love for the sport of rowing. The Plovdiv team of experts already has 3 major international rowing events behind their backs – the 1999 World Rowing Junior Championships, the 2011 European Rowing Championships and the 2012 World Rowing Senior and Junior Championships that took place on the same venue in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The Organising Committee’s stakeholders also include the Plovdiv Municipality, the Bulgarian Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Bulgarian Rowing Federation – all working together for another successful celebration of the rowing sport.
