The Club

Since he took up rowing, the founder of our club, Charles Henri Dallemagne, always thought about starting a new club, more modern, younger, more “fun” in Belgium. When in 1997, the juniors he trained in another club wanted a better infrastructure, more “cool”, more flexible, matching young rowers demands, the idea was back. That year then, an experienced rower, a bunch of young rowers supported by dedicated adults (J-C Marchal, Josiane Stradiot and E. Van Cleemput) started the club.



Since time immemorial, men have sailed the waters ways, rivers or the sea. For centuries the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Phoenicians used the arm strength to move their boats before using the wind. The Phoenicians were using silk cushions in order not only to use arms only but combining is with legs. But even if the ancients considered an honor to row their boats and triremes, it quickly became a galley slave task. Sails and sailing use put an end to that slavery.
