The municipality of Follainville-Dennemont (1,912 inhabitants) is located on the right (northern) bank of the river Seine, c. 50 km downstream from Paris and 6 km from the town of Mantes-la-Jolie, which is located across the river. The village of Dennemont, where the philosoph Condorcet (1743-1794) had his castle, was part of the municipality of Saint-Martin-la-Garenne before being merged with Dennemont to form the today's municipality.

The Cercle de Voile de Dennemont (CVD; website) is based on a small island; the stretch of the river allocated to the club is located between kilometric points (PK) PK 112 and PK 116. The club was founded in 1926 and its club house is the former ballroom of Auberge du Vieux Moulin (Old Mill's Inn).
The CVD website shows a possible club flag, white with an off-centred cross made of blue-white-red stripes. The burgee of the club is shown on the emblem of the club, to be seen on the posters advertizing the races organized by the CVD (Coupe Vent d'Ouest, Coupe de la Seine and Trophée la Parisienne Muscadet - Coupe Coillard). It is a triangular version of the possible flag with the canton horizontally divided blue-red.
