The European Fixed Seat Rowing Championship will be held in Lake Pusiano in Northern Italy on 7 October 2017.

Entry to the event is free, as is attendance at the welcome dinner on the Friday evening.
Flights should be booked to Milan Malpensa Airport.
Last year those attending were provided with free transfers to and from Milan Malpensa Airport, and to and from most of the activities associated with the event. This year there is no guaranteed transfer unless staying in one of 4 small hotels near to the event headquarters. Accommodation is limited there.
If we are unable to find suitable accommodation at the venue – the most sensible option for accommodation looks to be in Lecco which is about 10 miles away. There is a range of reasonably priced accommodation available there.
Attached is a link to Lecco for information – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lecco
If the race organised are unable to provide transfers to the accommodation we source – we will have to arrange our transfers to and from Milan Malpensa Airport, and the Race venue.
An option maybe be to hire a minivan or 2. Otherwise there look to be public transport and taxi links between Lecco and Lake Pusiano.
If you would like to attend – please register on the event website. A £20 fee per person is also required to secure registration. This should be paid into the into the club account. Details of the payment process will be sent to those who register on the website.
