The 2017 World Rowing Championship – Due to be Held in Sarasota, Florida
The 47th edition of the World Rowing Championships are set to be held from 24th September to 1st October, 2017. The location of the event will be the Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota, Florida.
Venue for 2017 World Rowing Championship
The venue for the 47th World Rowing Championship will be Nathan Benderson Park, Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida. The park has been built to FISA racing standards and is made up of 9 x 13.5 meter lanes with 50 meters of clear water between the west shore and the course. There is also 27 meters between the wave attenuator and the course.
The specifications of the course are 2,180 meters in length, 630 meters wide and an average of 6 meters deep. The course also has separate warm-up and cool down lanes.
The course has a state-of-the-art floating wave attenuator that helps to secure calm waters during the competition but also doubles up as a TV road. At the time of writing the venue is not yet complete. Two thirds of the construction has been completed with the final phase to include the building of a boathouse, additional parking and other amenities.
As well as enjoying world-class rowing there are a number of other experiences visitors can enjoy. There is a schedule of events that includes unique themes for each day of the competition. There’s an exclusive Visitor’s Experience program that takes guests around Sarasota-Bradenton, for excursions. Family fun days, Eco-days, farmers market. Military appreciation, golden age celebration and much more are just a few examples.
