"This basin has been the preferred venue for Normandy clubs and the League for training courses and competitions for 30 years. The Pôle Espoirs Normandie comes here regularly to train. The natural setting is magnificent and makes it possible to practice at all times, whether on the Seine or in the basin. The vegetation provides shelter from the prevailing winds. Sessions are almost never cancelled. On courses, everything is done on the same site, which is a real comfort".
