EvaH '35 HUN 2002, 2004 EuroMasters, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 EuroMasters, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016 EuroMasters
After rowing with MI for all these years, Eva decided it was finally time to retire. She will be missed!
Burk '25 USA (2009, 2010, 2011, 2013)
He is the founder of the OAR society inf 2007. This movement has resulted in more older rowers, especially men, to participate at FISA Masters. This also motivated FISA to add the J and K categories. Although not competing in races anymore, he will continue to keep fit by rowing on the erg.
Vivienne '34 CAN 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013
She decided that FISA Masters was just too much, especially since she had less and less opportunity at her club to row in crews.
Savel '44 GER 2001 EuroMasters, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006
EuroMasters, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 EuroMasters, 2010, 2011, 2015, 2016
Eva was a core MI member for many years. Unfortunately, a bad bike accident injured her leg and hip very badly. She needed metal screws and plates for repair. She was able to come back for a couple of years but now the metal pieces are causing
severe problems. She will no longer be able to row.
Rosa '31, ESP
2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014 EuroMasters
They arrived in Trakai as total novices to FISA Masters Regattas. They also had no experience in rowing in big boats so kept catching crabs during their races that first year. But they learned quickly and became our MI "mascots", liked and enjoyed by everyone!
Montse '34, ESP
Waltraud Kuenzler '42 SUI (1998, 1999,
2000, 2001 EuroMasters, 2002)
Waltraud died on August 2014. She fought cancer and other illnesses for many years.
She enjoyed rowing with MI very much and kept in touch regularly after she had to give up racing.
Always a good "team player", she would have enjoyed being part of our now so much larger MI group
Joey Peter '47, cox NY died on Nov 3, 2016 from lung cancer. As of March, he was still planning to come to US Masters and FISA Masters. He coxed us since 2004, mostly at FISA Masters. His last FISA with us was in Varese but then he got very busy coxing his mens crews and we had to fill his place with other coxswains.
Lew Cuyler '33 USA 2006 Princeton, 2007, 2008, 2009
Lew died Nov 3 of complications from Alzheimer's, from which he suffered for many years and which kept him from rowing with us
after 2009. He was the founder of Berkshire Rowing and Sculling Society and one of the most enthusiastic masters rowers.
He was the husband of our past MI women's member Harriet.
KARL and ANNELISE, fans
Starting with Bled in in 1995, they came to FISA Masters almost every year until Vienna 2009, bringing their caravan to the camping area to support our MI groups with water and food for those who wanted it. They were also our greatest fans in the stands, watching every one of our races. Many of our photos from those days were taken by Karl.
Karl died on Feb 21. Annelise has total dementia. Two good friends of MI gone!!!!!
