European Rowing Championships

European Rowing Championships

The European Rowing Championships is an international Rowing regatta organised by FISA (the International Rowing Federation).

The first event was held in 1893 and as of 1962 was replaced (one year in four) by the World Rowing Championships, which then became an annual event from 1974. Women's events were introduced in 1954, but even then men's and women's events were held on different days.

On 27 May 2006 the FISA members voted to re-introduce European Rowing Championships

In the first event there were only 3 events (men's single, coxed four and eight) and only ten entries. Races were 3,000 m long, except for singles - which were only 2,000 m.

In 2007, when the European Rowing Championship was re-introduced, there were 14 Olympic boat classes racing over 2,000m.
