World Championships

The World Rowing Championships are the climax of each rowing season outside of Olympic and Paralympic years.

The first rowing World Championships were held in 1962 with women’s events and men’s lightweight events being added in 1974, lightweight women’s events in 1985 and adaptive rowing making its debut in 2003.

The annual regatta, organised by rowing’s world governing body FISA and held at a different location each year now features crews from more than 68 nations and 1,200 rowers competing in both Olympic and Paralympic and non-Olympic/Paralympic “international-class” events.

In Olympic and Paralympic years the Championships are merged with the Junior World Championships in the absence of the world’s top senior crews and only feature non-Olympic/Paralympic class events at senior level.
