Greetings from Plovdiv, Bulgaria where despite my better judgement/lack of preparation I reunited with my best friend and rowing partner from my junior rowing years to participate in the Nationals Rowing Championships in the Open Category.

Other than a few members of the National Team, most of the rowers who participated were actual junior rowers, so I knew we most likely would finish last, but the opportunity to row on this beautiful canal, and reunite with my coach Tsoniu Grigorov, who made me the rower that I am, in addition to some of my former teammates was too good to miss. Finally, I knew that our participation would earn some points for my rowing club , which can improve team standing, and if I'm not mistaken possibly funding...

Speaking of funding, I will be putting together a fundraising campaign in the next month or so, to help my rowing club Lokomotiv Ruse with the purchase of at least two new rowing shells and a motorboat. The boats we rowed are between 25 and 45 years old, most are wooden, heavy boats, making it difficult to be competitive and discouraging for the young rowers on the team. The club doesn't have a single motorboat, which is not only essential for safety but also for for the quality of the rowing practice. In short, stay tuned because I am hoping to get some support here for the club which is still so near and dear to my heart some 25 years after I had left it And my country.

But back to the racing, we raced in 2-, 4- and 4x, and on average the rest of the rowers were 20+ years younger than us. "These are the rowers from the old times.." some young kid said, 😂

We somehow managed to get 3rd in the 2- and 4- and finished 5th in the 4x. This is all out of 6, it was finals only. A great time was had despite the hot weather and some equipment issues.

Next stop is my rowing tour in Austria starting early July, where I have a group of 11 American and Australian rowers joining me for a different type of rowing adventure. Stay tuned for more!

A rower from the old times
