On the program Saturday, July 4: guided tour of the Round Basin and meeting with a user! An exciting guided tour in an exceptional bucolic setting ... A bit of history! Back to the inter-war period, the golden age of the Round Basin ... Contrary to its name, the Round Basin is rectangular! It was created to provide a link between the Scheldt and the Sensée. It is a place where mariners liked to meet. French and Belgian boats sometimes waited six to ten days for crossing the lock at Iwuy (a town near Cambrai). In the meantime, they stocked up for their trip and participated in local trade. Ropes, poles, cables,… were sold on site. In this gathering place, the grocers, the brewers but also the taverns were numerous. The atmosphere was cheerful. A return in images proposed by the guide of the Tourist Office, will explain the golden age of the Round Basin… Today, a place of leisure! Former high place of the inland waterways, the Round basin became a place of leisures animated by the Center of Outdoors where one can learn there to direct a dinghy or a board with veil, rent a canoe or a VTT to walk the along the banks, archery ... All in a pleasant setting where the flora and fauna of the banks are conducive to contemplation ... And if you participate in the family guided tour from the Bassin sailing club round?
