The future of New Zealand rowing looks to be in good hands after the New Zealand team picked up 2 titles at the Under-23 World Championships in Germany.

Joseph Sullivan retained his heavyweight sculling title, while Graham Oberlin Brown won the lightweight sculling title.

Oberlin Brown picked up where Storm Uru left off last year once again taking the title for New Zealand after a dominant regatta when he was never headed.

There were fifth places for the men's four and women's quadruple scull in the A finals.

The men's eight was unable to start the B final due to illness.

The women's four won their B final - finishing with an overall ranking of seventh.
