Breaking oars…

Good call on deciding to cancel our Hel van Vlaanderen challenge this week-end: this experienced C-row crew broke 2 oars coming in through the surf during a test run on Sunday afternoon..

VRL sea rowing initiation

On July 8 C-row, together with the Flemish Rowing Liga, organised a day at sea for experienced rowers. For most it was the first time rowing in waves, current and salt water. Starting from our club the Windhaan in De Haan, they rowed to Oostende, had lunch in Bredene, and rowed back to De Haan. Total distance of 20 km, in challenging conditions: 4 /5 bft NE winds and choppy seas. Gathering from the big smiles this didn’t bother anyone. Everybody had a great time. Special thanks to Mark Devos and Nils Clarie,  on the very wet and cold rescue boat!
