Belgian Nationals ….!!

The NOR for the Belgian Nationals has been posted on the BIFFA website – it’s this weekend coming, and a superbly hospitable event by all accounts.!!!…  won last year by Anthony Osman and Andrew Murphy!!!

When I was doing the occasional commute by car to Brussels, we often used to play “Name Six Famous Belgians” as part of our car-game repertoire.  It’s pretty hard actually (for a Brit!), as Poirot and Tin Tin are fictional and disallowed. So now you know Anthony and Andrew, you have only to find another four !!

The 2012 Belgian Championship – and their Fabulous New Clubhouse!!…

You may recall that we had UK winners of the Belgian Championship in 2011… That reminds me – Andy,  are you coming back to Datchet for this winter??


The dates for the 2012 Belgian Championships have been announced at October 6th and 7th 2012.  If you fancy stopping over for a vacation, you can bring the boat a week earlier or leave a week later.

They have a really spectacular new Clubhouse too – see the photos….(double click to enlarge)
