World RIC

World Rowing Indoor 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 Rowing Indoor Championships (WRIC) (Formerly held at the C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints) in February. The WRIC 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 RIC.
Atlanta is one of those 19 regattas!

In the event that the Atlanta Erg Sprints has more than four qualifiers for the World RIC 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


*By World RIC rules, Junior event participants (ages 14-18) must have been born on or after Jan. 1, 1992 AND be enrolled in high school (or lower grade) as of race day.  No one under age 14 may row in the 
World RIC.
