The race course at Goplo Lake is regarded as one of the best natural water regions in Europe.
It is a perfect place to host signiﬁcant sports events.
Hosting the European Rowing Championships is a great honour for local rowing.
I am convinced that the Championships will be met with great interest at home and abroad, and will create an opportunity for
promoting the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodenship in Europe.
It is with great pleasure that I accept the position of honorary patron of the First European Rowing Under 23 Championships,
which will take place in the Polish town of Kruszwica on 2nd - 3rd September 2017.
I would like to wish the best of luck to all the rowing teams and crews, and to the organisers.
I hope you achieve all your goals, and I hope you are satisﬁed with this event.
The Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivode
