Portuguese Rowing History

I have come to understand that blogs on rowing history are a rare thing. If you google ‘blogs’ and ‘rowing history’, you will come up with only a few, and some of them are old and had their last entries in 2008 or 2009. Therefore, I was very pleased to find an active blog, Remo Historia [Rowing History], which is run by Carlos Henriques in Lisbon, Portugal. It has some very nice old photographs of oarsmen, crews, and prizes, etc. From now on, you will find a link on the right to Remo Historia. If your Portuguese is a little rusty, like mine, Google has a translation ‘box’ that would give you a rough translation of what Carlos is writing.
