On the occasion of the 15th Asian Games, a rower from Doha registered with GLRF, expanding the worldwide community presence to 23 countries. The registration also marked the first membership in the GLRF African (Afrique) continental area. There are now six continental areas represented within GLRF: North America, South America, Europe, Oceania, Asia, and Africa.


Rowing has a long tradition in the North African region. World Rowing recently reported the resurgence of rowing in Iraq. A review of the Qatar Rowing and Sailing Federation website indicates a strong commitment to develop rowing in the area and announced the arrival of new boats earlier this year.
