Defending champions Joel Cassells, Sam Scrimgeour and Henry Fieldman are among the rowers included in a three-boat squad for the World Championships.

None of Britain's Olympians will race at the Rotterdam regatta, which begins eight days after the rowing in Rio.

"These three senior boats will want to lay down a marker for the Tokyo Olympics," said British Rowing performance director Sir David Tanner.

A women's four and lightweight men's quad could yet be added to the squad.
