#Rowing: Hurricane Irma’s impact on Florida left a lot of those interested in the World Rowing Championships, which are set to take place in Sarasota from September 24th to October 1st, worried. Immediately after the storm, this was a statement from the local organisers:  

“The organizing committee of the 2017 World Rowing Championships has started a complete assessment of the impact of Hurricane Irma. The OC is in constant communication with local and state officials to coordinate the recovery initiatives in the area as well as with the airports, hotels, transport partners and vendors. 

 “The Sarasota/Bradenton area did not come under the direct impact of the hurricane as predicted thus, luckily, damage is limited. The area is still under movement restrictions until all services are restored and roadway damage is cleared.

 “The 2017 World Rowing Championships staff is working diligently along with the support of FISA and USRowing to ensure a safe and successful World Championships. 

Further updates will follow in the next 24 to 48 hours.”
