It was a perfect Coastal day in Helsingborg, Sweden. The strong northwesterly wind Friday coming from the open sea had during the night moved to a more calm southwesterly direction making it possible for all boats to succesfully conquer the waves. No rain and a mix of sun and clouds with temperature in the low 20’s and the scene was set for the first Open Nordic Coastal Championship.

At the FISA 2020 Extraordinary Congress it was decided to forward a new Olympic event programme proposal for the IOC Executive Board for the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
On 10 June 2020 the IOC Executive Board (EB) agreed to maintain the previously set deadline of December 2020 to confirm the event programme and athlete quotas for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
The programme proposal has been adopted to comply with the IOC EB decision that underlined the decision should be based on the following previously established key principles:
•Reducing the overall athlete quota (including for all new sports) to 10,500;
•Achieving gender equal participation across the Olympic Games at event and discipline level where possible;
• Prioritising new events that accommodate athletes within the sport’s existing quota allocation; and
• Using existing venue for any proposed new events
The Council has taken careful note of the position of the IOC on separate weight categories for sports that do not involve combat or weightlifting. The Council believes that CoastalRowing adds value for the sport -increases diversity, expands the number of countries that can participate, adds value to the Games-Youth Appeal and innovative TV programming as well as meets and will surpass all the criteria sought by the IOC EB. Therefore, the Council proposes that the Olympic rowing programme for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games should consist of the following classes:
|Single Sculls||Single Sculls||Coastal Rowing Double Sculls|
|Double Sculls||Double Sculls||Coastal Rowing Solo|
|Quadruple Sculls||Quadruple Sculls||Coastal Rowing Solo|
This means that Lightweight boats will disappear from the Olympic event programme and Coastal boat will be introduced.

The 2020 World Rowing Masters Regatta that previously was cancelled by World Rowing has now been turned into an alternative regatta as the 2020 World Rowing Virtual Masters Regatta (WRVMR).
The WRVMR will take place on September 2-6, 2020. These are the same dates on which the original regatta was supposed to be held.
Designed to be done anywhere in the world, Masters Rowers are invited to complete a 1000m piece on any kind of indoor rowing machine.
Due to the uncertain Covid-19 health situation and the current travel ban in Denmark, Finland and Norway for going to the Stockholm area, it has been decided by the Nordic Rowing Federation to cancel the Nordic Junior NM 2020.
We look forward to see you all at the Nordic Junior NM 2021 in Sweden.
