Rowing one could say that it is in the nature of Kastorians, who have achieved some major accomplishments, putting the city in the world map.
So far, the Nautical club of Kastoria (N.O.K.), the regional Rowing Club (K.O.K.) and the Nautical Club of Mavrochori (N.O.M.) have participated in Panhellenic and international competitions, counting many successes.
This, obviously, would not be possible without having the ideal "terrain" to practice, aka Lake Orestiada, which along with a unique environment is the perfect pitch for training athletes, as well as the National Rowing team, but also makes a racing track hosting various events.
