Such wide coverage in the media, which was not previously typical for the World Regatta Tournament, along with approval in 2016, became the main reason that the event caused a particular resonance both among fans and among bettors gaining money on rowing.
Highlights from the 2017 World Rowing Masters Regatta
This championship is considered the 44th World Masters Regatta. Earlier, before the championship, it was decided that it would be hosted by the city of Bled, which is located in Slovenia. This city submitted an application for participation and it was approved, since all the necessary conditions were met, and it was also decided by the commission members that this city owns one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world. In this city of Bled, various boat tournaments and contests have been held for many years, so among the tasks of the organizers was to prepare and ensure the holding of competitions in one of the most fascinating and picturesque places on the planet. And based on all these factors, we finally got to the key point – the historic number of participants was registered at the World Regatta Contest. Such a scale attracted the attention of betting facilities.
