Coastal rowers crown their World Champions in front of Hong Kong’s stunning skyline


Rowing in front of skyscrapers in a busy harbor? The 2019 World Rowing Coastal Championships in Hong Kong were full of action! Raced on Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbor, right in the heart of the city, competitors had to contend with choppy and wavy conditions caused not only by the wind but also by the wash of passing ferries. This meant that rowers with the ability to handle rough water had the edge. The rowers also had six buoy turns around the first lap and back for the same on the second lap over the 6km course.

China was marked by Ukraine’s Diana Dymchenko winning the women’s solo for the third consecutive year. Not only that Dymchenko went on to race in the mixed double sculls and with partner Yuriy Ivanov, she took out her second gold for the championships.
