Apex, NC, September 1, 2015: The world famous Stämpfli Express 24x rowing shell arrives from Switzerland and will have its American debut on Jordan Lake, NC on September 14th, 2015. Dr. Felix Muhlebach, President of CHAOS Rowing club said “We are delighted that Stämpfli decided on Jordan Lake for the debut of the Stämpfli Express. It’s unique in rowing to have a rowing shell that can seat 24 rowers and a coxswain. The Stämpfli Express is basically three eight-person shells bolted together to form a rowing shell over 150 feet long.” Dr. Muhlebach said that the Stämpfli Express is very stable and even inexperienced people can learn to row this amazing boat.
