World IRC Qualifying Times

Anyone can compete in the World Indoor Rowing Championships provided they are 14 years of age or older. To enter the competition, please visit the CRASH-B website.

Qualifying Times

The qualifying times below are for US and Canadian rowers interested in qualifying for a trip to Boston for the 2015 CRASH-B Sprints. The qualifying times are based on averages of prior years’ CRASH-B results.

Concept2 provides the airfare for up to four competitors from each of the 20 official satellite regattas of the CRASH-Bs. In the event that a given regatta has more than four qualifiers, the satellite regatta organizers decide who is selected for the trip. Concept2 has no role in that decision process.
