This page is sadly out of date, and concentrates on USA and UK domestic competition, ignoring the Olympics & World Championships. The detail of comparison times between heavyweight and lightweight crews in particular events is not useful. There has been significant controversy about the number of lightweight rowing events included in the Olympics which should be included here. Ancienterracht (talk) 15:00, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Not only that but the comparison of lightweight vs heavyweight times has no references and, to be frank, is complete bollocks. Over the course of a head race, finish times can be affected by wind, tide and stream, so time comparisons are meaningless. --ukexpat (talk) 18:19, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
