The defending world champions Storm Uru and Peter Taylor are the feature crew in action today at the World Rowing Championships on Lake Karapiro as the New Zealand team hopes to get another five crews into A finals.
Uru and Taylor line up in the semi-finals of the men's lightweight double sculls with the first three moving through to the weekend's finals.
It's the same situation for Lucy Strack and Julia Edward in the women's double sculls.
High performance Manager Allan Cotter is confident in the two young women's chances.
Cotter points out how young they are at 19 and 20, they medalled at the under-23 world champs this year and they're really determined.
New Zealanders are also involved in repechages of the women's four and men's four, having to finish in the top two to progress.
Storm Uru's brother Jade has also progressed as a part of the men's four and Storm says the family has been there from Southland to cheer them on.
Storm Uru says it also gave them a bit extra to hear the local crowd cheering them near the end, and that support's certainly going to help the team in the finals.
