Angenant photo archive Albert Angenant was well-known to many of us as an avid canoeist who joined the club in 1985. He was active in many aspects of canoeing: as a canoe builder, as the boatmaster at RMC, as an active whitewater canoeist and as the writer of an extensive guide to local rivers. Prior to his passing in 2010, he provided us with a photo montage showing some of the people he has paddled with over the past few years. Have a look.
