Updated Events and Dates

There have been some changes to LBRA dates. Note that the Spring Regatta is not on the list of events. The board found that it was in LBRA’s best interest to cancel that regatta for this coming year due to conflicting schedules and because we will be hosting the USRowing Southwest Masters Regional Championships in July.  The 5th of our current Bay Series had a date change due to the desire of many to compete at the Desert Sprints in Tempe, AZ.

World Rowing Indoor Championships coming to Long Beach

The World Rowing Federation (FISA) in partnership with Concept2, USRowing and the Long Beach Sprints are pleased to announce the location of the second World Rowing Indoor Championships.

The event will take place in Long Beach, California at the Walter Pyramid on the Long Beach State campus on February 24,  2019.  The event will combine with the Long Beach Sprints and also will serve as the inaugural USRowing Indoor National Championships.

Last year the inaugural championships attracted over 2,500 participants from 33 countries competing for World Championship medals in open, junior, under-23, para and masters in both openweight and lightweight categories.

“Indoor rowing is now a legitimate international sporting discipline and a championship-rated format is necessary,” says Jean-Christophe Rolland, FISA President. “We are pleased to be again partnering with Concept2 and USRowing, and the success of the first event shows that the demand for the championships is justified. We are making plans for future events to take place in different parts of the world.”

”LBRA is tremendously honored to be selected for this premier event.  Long Beach has a proud legacy in American rowing, beginning with the 1932 Olympic Games, and we have been an incubator for Olympic and National Team talent through the intervening 85+ years.  We can’t wait to welcome the world to our doorstep in 2019,” says Rob Glidden, President of the Long Beach Rowing Association. 

“We have run indoor rowing competitions from their inception over 35 years ago, as well as host several on-water competitions throughout the year, plus have been the site for regional and national regattas as recently as 2008, but being part of the World Rowing Indoor Championships, and helping the event to grow and thrive, is a unique privilege.”

“We are excited to be partnering with FISA, Concept2 and the Long Beach Sprints to bring the World Rowing Indoor Championships back to the United States in 2019,” says Patrick McNerney, Chief Executive Officer of USRowing.
