The 1966 World Rowing Championships was the second time that world championships in rowing were held. The regatta was held from 8 to 11 September at Lake Bled in Bled, Slovenia, Yugoslavia.[1][2] There were 613 rowers from 32 countries who competed in 141 in the seven Olympic boat classes.[3][4]

The Australian rowing history website has the following commentary: "The superbly organized regatta was held on the magnificent lake at Bled: a fitting setting for the second world championships."[2] Prior to the 4th World Rowing Championships in 1974, only men competed.[1]

Background[edit]

Bled and the German cities of Essen and Duisburg had competed for the right to host the second World Rowing Championships. At a FISA meeting in August 1963, held in conjunction with the 1963 European Rowing Championships for men, the decision in favour of Bled was made.[5]
