THE 14th Regatta Litocar – Carlos Assunção Cup takes place next Sunday, in the Montemor-o-Velho High Performance Center, starting at 09H30, and predictably until 18H00.
Bringing together athletes of all ages, from children to veterans, the event will feature 24 clubs, five of them from Spain, with a total of 505 rowers, who will compete in 32 races in 84 races distributed by 442 crews.
Litocar, "within the framework of its social responsibility policy, has been supporting the Figueirense rowing for 15 years and has been an interesting partnership for both parties," said Gonçalo Cardoso.
"We support the Gymnasium to develop its activity both in training and in competition. For us it is very important to support the younger players and it is our intention to maintain this partnership, which has the most visible achievement with this race, "added the group's manager.
Alice Mano Carbonier, vice president of Ginásio Figueirense, explained that "Litocar's support is absolutely indispensable and vital and supporting sport is the best way for companies to show their interest in society."
