The European Rowing Confederation (referred to as European Rowing) represents the 46 European national rowing federations, including Israel, and is recognised by World Rowing as the Continental Confederation for Europe. It is governed by the European Rowing Board and based at the World Rowing Offices in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The European Rowing Board duties are set out in the ERC Statutes, and include monitoring and managing the staging of the European Rowing Championships, the European Rowing Junior, U23 and Indoor Championships and other European Rowing events. It also supports the development and promotion of rowing across the European continent and the cooperation between European national federations. It works closely with World Rowing on dates of competitions to ensure a coherent calendar of events for the sport.
