ABOUT THE VENUE
Lake Malta regatta course is located in the centre of Poznan. It is one of the most modern venues in the world and over the last twenty years has hosted large international events in water sports. Poznan hosted the 2007 and 2015 European Rowing Championships, the 2009 World Rowing Championships, the 2016 World Rowing Cup III and the 2017 World Rowing Cup II.
Poznan is located in west-central Poland along the Warta River. It is the fifth largest city amongst one of the oldest cities in Poland. Its population is approximately 550,000.
The origins of the first Poznan rowing club go back to the year 1904. Its initiator and founder was Maciej Wierzbinski who settled then in Poznan after a long-term stay in England. In 1912 the Tryton Poznan Association was established, and in 1919 the Students’ Sport Association began life. In the same year the Polish Federation of Rowing Associations (Polski Zwiazek Towarzystw Wioslarskich, PZTW) was established in Poznan. It was one of the first sports federations created in the reborn Poland, and was founded by 13 sports clubs. In 1924 Polish rowers took part in the 9th Olympic Games in Paris for the first time, entering two crews, a single and a four, into competition. They won their first Olympic medal (bronze) during their second Olympic appearance in 1928 in Amsterdam. From 1925, Polish rowing crews participated in the European Championships until their last appearance in 1938. The rowers returned to the European Championships after the Second World War in 1947, in Lucerne.
