Six New Zealand crews are on the water today at the World Rowing Championships on Lake Karapiro with the chance of a first medal for one of them.

The adaptive rower Danny McBride will be this country's first medal prospect in the singles sculls.

Defending champions, single sculler Mahe Drysdale and the men's coxless pair of Eric Murray and Hamish Bond both have semi-finals.

Women's single sculler Emma Twigg will also contest her semi final today.

Both the men's and women's eight will be in repechages with the first two crews across the line go into the final.
