• 2021 World Rowing Under 23 Championships

    21. – 25. 7. 2021 | Račice, Czech Republic


machaceks headDear Rowing Friends,
on behalf of the Czech Rowing Association and the Organising Committee I would like to warmly invite you to the Labe Arena Račice for the 2021 World Rowing Under 23 Championships.

The history of world rowing championships in the Czech Republic, formerly Czechoslovakia, dates back to 1986 when it was the World Rowing Junior Championships - first international rowing event to be hosted in Račice. Another milestone was celebrated here in 2009 when we organised World Rowing U23 Championships. In 2015 we organised the European Rowing Junior Championships, in 2017 staged the very successful European Rowing Championships and last year we hosted the best juniors at World Rowing Junior Championships.

We are delighted that in July 2021 the best U23 athletes are returning to Račice for their world championships once again.
I hope athletes, coaches and spectators will enjoy this World Rowing U23 Championships and I even look forward to seeing them back again in 2022 when Labe Arena in Račice will host World Rowing Championships.

Yours in Sport,
Dušan Macháček
President of the Czech Rowing Association

„I remember feeling bad for the crews we rowed against. I knew how hard we had trained. I knew before they did, they would lose this race.“
