Rowing in Brussels


Even though you wouldn't spot any rowing boats in the centre of Brussels, it is however possible, like in many other metropolises, to row in the outskirts of the city.

The territory of Brussels counts several rowing clubs, from the west to the east of the city : the Cercle des régates de Bruxelles (CRB), the Sport Nautique Universitaire de Bruxelles (SNUB), the Royal Sport Nautique de Bruxelles (RSNB), our club the Union Nautique de Bruxelles (UNB) and the club Akhénaton.

Sitting side by side on the Chaussée de Vilvoorde, the UNB and RSNB share the same boarding pontoon on the Willebroak Canal. The two clubs however differ in their colours: red and green for RSNB, navy blue and white for UNB.

Discover rowing

Rowing is a complete sport, requiring the use of many muscles : from the legs, back, arms... It stimulates the cardiovascular system, develops self-control and balance. Rowing is both an individual and a team sport where everyone can find what they are looking for. We welcome any motivated person from the age of 12 to the initiations.

Competitions & Regattas

Rowing is an Olympic sport and is, in essence, a competitive sport. However, the Olympic Games are far from being the only event where top rowers can compete.

Recreational rowing

The walks are one-day walks, but can also be organised over several days. The routes vary from 25 to 40 km per day. They often allow you to discover regions in an unusual way: from the water!
