For the first time in the history of the 127-year-old organization, a FISA rowing event will be hosted in Africa.
FISA announced the 2023 World Rowing Masters Regatta will be held in Tshwane, South Africa, September 21-24. The four-day event will take place at Roodeplaat Dam, a South African national team training location.
The FISA logo for the event, which prominently displays a kudu, a type of spiral-horned antelope, was designed by South African national team sculler Ursula Grobler.
The event website will be live in June, according to the announcement.
