From September 23 – October 1, 2017, the World Rowing Championships, an international rowing regatta organized by FISA (the World Rowing Federation), will be held at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida, the only Class A course in the United States and “where world-class athletes come to compete.” In the 48 years of the event’s existence, the United States has hosted only one other World Championships, in 1994 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
This weeklong event is held at the end of the northern hemisphere summer. In non-Olympic years, it is the highlight of the international rowing calendar. Rowing takes place in 26 different boat classes for both men and women.
