Height in lightweight rowing

I want to become a really competitive lightweight rower but I’m afraid that my height will keep me from ever being really good. I’m 171 cm (5’7 and 1/2 roughly for you democracy lovers), 18M, and weigh roughly 153 Ibs. The last 2k I did was a 6:39 and that was around 1 year ago. Looking at all the other really good lw rowers I see that they’re all 5’9 at shortest and some are even 6’3. How can I compete with someone significantly taller than me if height is that important in rowing?
