World recordsEdit

The championships were notable for the number of world best times set on days seven & eight of competition (30 & 31 August) with fourteen long standing world marks set in addition to a number of world best times beaten then bettered during the regatta. Tail winds and fast water affected the conditions on the Bosbaan but the new marks were allowed to stand by FISA. The records included the sixteen fastest ever times rowed at World Championships, with fourteen of those also being the world's best time. As of 2021 eleven of those marks still stand as the world's best times.[29]
