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.
