Young Friends and Sportsmen!
The Kujawsko-Pomorskie Region and the Town of Kruszwica are the hosts of 2017 European Rowing Under 23 Championships. This is a superb opportunity to present our region – Cuiavia and Pomerania to youth from many European countries. Sport is a perfect ground for international understanding and a chance to establish friendships. I believe the youth who will arrive at Kruszwica shall be joined by far more than rowing competition on the Gopło lake. Kujawsko-Pomorskie is developing sports. 2017 European Rowing U-23 Championships is not the only big event in our region. Another just as prestigious is the European Athletics U-23 Championships in Bydgoszcz, and International Athletics Indoor Meeting Copernicus Cup in Toruń. We are proud of our water-sports which are the brands of the region. Our athletes of rowing, canoeing and windsurﬁng have won several medals during European, and world championships as well as Olympic Games. I welcome you in Poland, in Cuiavia and Pomerania - the region that support youth, activity and creativity. I hope you will bring from here unforgettable good memories and come back in the future.
