2012 World Rowing Championships
LocationPlovdiv, Bulgaria
Dates15 to 19 August

The 2012 World Rowing Championships were World Rowing Championships that were held from 15 to 19 August 2012 at Plovdiv, Bulgaria.[1] The annual week-long rowing regatta is organized by FISA (the International Rowing Federation), and held at the end of the northern hemisphere summer. Because the 2012 Summer Olympics was the major rowing event in 2012, the programme was limited to non-Olympic events, and the World Rowing Junior Championships were held at the same time.
