The Commonwealth Rowing Championships are held in conjunction with the Commonwealth Games since rowing is no longer included in the Commonwealth Games programme (but it is hoped that rowing may return to the Games in 2018).

In 1994 and 1999 the Commonwealth Rowing Association organised a Commonwealth Rowing Regatta at Fanshawe Lake, London, Ontario, Canada.

In August 2002 the first Commonwealth Rowing Championships were held in Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, England, and the 2006 Championships were held at Strathclyde Park, Motherwell, Scotland.

The 2010 Championships were held on 31 July and 1 August at Welland, Ontario, Canada.

In August 2014 the Championships were held, on a 1500 metre course, again at Strathclyde Park, Motherwell, Scotland.

2002 Participating Nations and Medal Count[edit]

This is the full table of the medal count of the first Commonwealth Rowing Championships. These rankings sort by the number of gold medals earned by a country. The number of silvers is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically. This follows the system used by the IOC, IAAF and BBC.
