New Zealand's world rowing championship campaign is off to the ideal start in Florida.

All six Kiwi boats in action have progressed beyond the heats.

Lightweight single sculler Matt Durham, the men's pair of Thomas Murray and James Hunter and the women's lightweight double of Zoe McBride and Jackie Kiddle have all won their heats.

McBride said it's been a confidence boosting performance.

"For the first race I think we've put out a solid performance, definitely moving forward into the semi's we know we can step it up again to another level so I guess just taking good things from today and then looking forward tot the semi's and then putting out a better performance."

Single sculler Robbie Manson has finished second in his heat to progress through to the quarter finals.

The men's quadruple sculls and men's four have both advanced to the semis after finishing second and third respectively in their heats.
