Dear Rowing Friends,

I am delighted that we are in a position to invite you all to the Czech Republic and the Labe aréna Račice for the 2021 World Rowing Under 23 Championships.

Rowing is the great sporting passion of my life, and I used to row regularly at Račice during my competitive career, including for my last appearance at a World Rowing Championships in 1993 in the double scull. Since that time many things have changed here – we have invested large sums to improve facilities for both athletes and spectators. In particular, the 1980’s “barracks” have been replaced by modern accommodation facilities that provide greater comfort and an improved experience for competitors. The spectator areas and stands have also seen a transformation, and capacity and accompanying spectator services can be adjusted flexibly depending on the nature of the event being hosted. What we have been very careful to preserve is the great rowing atmosphere of this venue.

We are excited to welcome you all to Račice so you can enjoy the results of the investment programme. We will also be listening to your comments and suggestions – we are proud of our venue and want to continually improve athlete and spectator conditions for future events.

I look forward to seeing you in July 2021.

Jiří Kejval
President of the Czech Olympic Committee
but above all a rower at heart

Dear Rowing Friends,

on behalf of the Czech Rowing Association and the Organising Committee I would like to warmly invite you to the Labe arena Racice for the 2021 World Rowing Under 23 Championships.

The history of world rowing championships in the Czech Republic, formerly Czechoslovakia, dates back to 1986 when the World Rowing Junior Championships was the first international rowing event to be hosted at Račice. Another milestone was celebrated here in 1993 when we organised the World Rowing Championships. In 2009 we organised the World Rowing Under 23 Championships, in 2010 the World Rowing Junior Championships and then the European Rowing Junior Championships in 2015. In 2017 Račice staged the very successful European Rowing Championships, in 2018 we hosted the best juniors at the World Rowing Junior Championships.

We are delighted that in July 2021 the best U23 athletes are returning to Račice for their world championships once again.

I hope athletes, coaches and spectators will enjoy this World Rowing Under 23 Championships, and I also look forward to seeing them back here again in 2022 when the Labe Arena Račice will host the World Rowing Championships.

Yours in Sport,

Dušan Macháček
Presidet of the Czech Rowing Association
& Organizing Committee
