Dear Rowing Friends,

we are very happy to invite all of you to 7° Fixed Seat European Rowing Championships we will organize in Verbania town on Pallanza promenade, Lake Maggiore in the North of Italy on August the 13 th (Tuesday) and 14th (Wednesday) Pallanza promenade looks out over Lake Maggiore from its privileged situation on the Borromean Gulf. Pallanza and Intra are the two main centres of the municipality of Verbania, the capital city of the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. It’s situated on the shore of Lake Maggiore, about 91 km north-west of Milan and about 40 km from Locarno in Switzerland.  Verbania is not only famous for sport events, as for example 1906 European Rowing Championships, but also for tourism thanks to his monuments and lakeside promenade.  Organizing Committee, the Piazza Vila committee, is working with Fixed Seat Italian Rowing Federation to grant you all the best services.

After Savona (2013-2015), Reno (2014-2016), Eupilio (2017), Corgeno (2018-2019), Taranto 2022 and Genoa 2023, we are ready again to share our passion for fixed seat rowing.
