It’s a wrap: Test event for the European championships

In the lead-up to the European Championships, which also serves as an Olympic qualification event starting on November 8th, the PROW GROUP European Warm UP 2.0 Regatta recently took place from October 26th to 29th in the charming setting of Vilamoura. This regatta wasn’t just practice; it was a showcase of talent and fierce competition.
