After assessing the minimal damage left by Hurricane Irma at Nathan Benderson Park, Sarasota County officials have granted the local organizing committee for the 2017 World Rowing Championships, access to continue operations. As a result of months of planning and forecasting for potential storm delays, venue buildout is on schedule and the site will be ready to host the world's best rowers in Sarasota-Bradenton from September 23-October 1.

In addition, the committee’s Manager of Athlete Services, Kristen Hartley, remains in constant communication with Team Managers from each country, confirming their arrival schedules. Many of those teams will arrive to Florida later this week for training.
