Statement from The Sarasota-Bradenton Organising Committee on Hurricane Irma

9 September 2017

The Sarasota-Bradenton organizing committee is in constant contact with the Sarasota County Emergency Management Department for information about Hurricane Irma. Our focus at this time is on the staff, community and all those potentially impacted by Hurricane Irma.

From the current reports, the more severe weather associated with Hurricane Irma appears NOT to be headed toward the Sarasota-Bradenton area, but there may still be strong winds and rain until Tuesday, September 12.

The venue buildout schedule has been adjusted to reflect the weather forecasts and all planning for the World Rowing Championships is on schedule. The Manager of Athlete Services is in constant contact with Team Managers from each team, providing weather updates and any possible changes in their arrival schedules.

The local organizing committee and the 2017 World Rowing Championships staff will be working diligently toward putting on a world-class event at Nathan Benderson Park and welcoming the world to Sarasota- Bradenton.
