VenueRotsee
LocationLucerne, Switzerland
DatesMen (4-8 September)
Women (29 August - 1 September)[1]

The 1974 World Rowing Championships was the 4th World Rowing Championships. It was held from 4-8 September 1974 (for men) and 29 August - 1 September 1974 (for women)[2] at Rotsee in Lucerne, Switzerland. The event was significantly extended from the 1970 edition, with the addition of both women's and lightweight men's events. Six women boat classes were added, three lightweight men classes, plus quad scull for men, increasing the number of boat classes from seven in 1970 to seventeen in 1974. This was also the last World Championships held on a quadrennial cycle – from this point, World Championships were held annually.[3][4]
