We waited our guests with bread and salt at GPM Holiday Camping in Mamaia, and one by one, they sat at the tables. There was something in the air, as if the everybody knew we would have a blast, but no one could have imagined the fun we would have!
Our esteemed guests were invited to feast up on our delicios menu, the “iceing on the cake” being the delicios veal prepared in front of the guests by our chefs. The highlight of the evening was the the moment when everybody joined in an a huge “hora” (Romanian round dance).
As the evening went by, it was like everybody knew that this evening was only the beginning and that most certainly we would have a great time during the entire duration of the championship! I am very pleased that I have succeded to bring here, on Corbu Lake people from all over the world who can see what a great country we have! So, prepare your fishing rods because in the next few days you will be able to catch a lot of surprises! And, after all, if until Sunday you won’t decide to settle here, in Romania, at Corbu Lake, don’t call me Carpina!

The XIVth Edition of the Carp Fishing World Championship starts on the 27th of September in Romania and takes place on Corbu Lake, Constanta County. At this event, organized by S.C. Rig Service S.A., will participate 21 delegations from all over the world. Therefore, among South Africa, will also compete Romania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, England, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, and Ukraine.
Corbu Lake, the host of this event was proposed and accepted last year by AGVPS Romania as contest venue for the Carp Fishing World Championship. It is the first time that this competition is hosted by Romania. Therefore, the organizer, S.C. Rig Service S.A., took all the necessary measures in order to meet the demands of FIPSed (International Carp fishing Federation in freshwaters).
75 contest stands were built in record time, but with sense of responsibility and diligence, all of them equipped with all the facilities necessary for such an important international competition, including bungalows with two beds and nightstands, where fishermen may rest in comfortable conditions during the competition. In addition, the organizers provided umbrellas, work tables, chairs, ecological toilets and showers, information panels, watch posts, patrol cars, handheld transmitters and receivers, laptops, printers, copiers, internet access, LCDs, all in all, everything they considered to be necessary in order to ensure the best conditions for such a high level sports event.
The inspection of the FIPSed delegation (International Carp fishing Federation in freshwaters) which was formed by Mr. Antonio Gigli, the FIPSed president delegate, and Mr. Guido Mazzarella, Italy’s team captain, double world champion, concluded that the competition venue on Corbu Lake fulfills all the international competition standards, and more than that, it is one of the best in the world!
This way, the future of all sport competitions on Corbu Lake venue is assured. There have already been proposals for the organization of international youth inter-clubs competitions, as well as other competitions, such as Rig Service Cups and Corbu Lake’s Cups. This way, the carp angling in Romania will be put into value, as favorite destination for all the world anglers, and along with that, all the other touristic objectives from the Romanian seaside and the Danube Delta.
We are looking forward to seeing you, dear competitors, fishing enthusiasts or just spectators, at the XIVth edition of The Carp Fishing World Championship which will take place between September 27-30 and which will most certainly open the road for many fishing competitions in our country!
