Three more New Zealand crews have progressed at the World Rowing Championships in Slovenia.

Adaptive rower Danny McBride won his single sculls heat to qualify for the semi-finals.... the women's lightweight double were second in their heat and will go to a repechage... and the men's eight were third in their repechage to qualify for the semi-finals.

Yesterday 9 New Zealand crews won their heats.

The only New Zealand crew in action tonight is the men's quad in their repechage, needing to finish in the first two to make the semi-finals.
