Coastal_Filippi_Mediterraneo_1The 2015 World Rowing Tour on Lake Maggiore, from 12 to 20 September, has a new and prestigious partnership.  Filippi Boats, joins forces with the FISA event, organised by the Canottieri Luino, to promote Rowing at an international level, also from a recreational and touristic point of view. Filippi will provide 12 Coastal Rowing boats (Quad with cox) for the 77 rowers who will be rowing 180km over seven days during the event. Rowing on Lake Maggiore will be challenging but, at the same time, enjoyable thanks to the high quality of the boats.

All this, in order to find the best performance and optimum ergonomics. World leaders, Filippi boast an incredible collection of medals with 12 gold, 10 silver and 9 bronze medals at last year’s World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam.

“We are official partners in many events promoted by FISA to support Rowing internationally, not least of which the FISA Development Programm.” Explains David Filippi. “Therefore we are keen to support the organisation of the 2015 edition of the World Rowing Tour. The magnificent setting of Lake Maggiore is  wonderful natural environment, which definitely adds to the spectacular event.” The value of the partnership “The athletes can rely on high quality Coastal Rowing boats, conceived and manufactured using experience and expertise matured over decades of activity in traditional Rowing at the highest level.” Concludes Filippi
