World IRC

World Indoor Rowing Championships - MOVED TO ALEXANDRIA, VA for 2018

Qualifying times have been posted on the Concept 2 website - please view them here.

The qualifying time standards are for U.S. & Canadian indoor rowers interested in qualifying for a trip to Boston for the World Indoor Rowing Championships (aka The C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints) in February. The World IRC is are not involved with this selection or qualification.

Concept 2 provides the airfare for up to four competitors from each of the nineteen official satellite regattas of the World IRC.
Atlanta is one of those 19 regattas!

In the event that the Atlanta Erg Sprints has more than four qualifiers for the World IRC event, those selected for the trip is the decision of the satellite regatta organizers. Concept2 has no role in that decision process. The regatta organizers will first select at least one individual from each category represented by the qualifiers. If there are more than 4 events represented, then the individual with the largest margin of difference between their time and the qualifying time will be chosen. In the case that there are less than 4 events represented but more than 4 qualifiers, again, the participant with the largest margin of difference between their time and the qualifying time will be chosen.

The IIRA (International Indoor Rowing Association) rulebook states that the Lightweight classification is as follows:
Men 165 lbs/75 kgs and under
Women 135 lbs/61.4 kgs and under
