Pole France – For EMC Sport reasserts itself
The Mediterranean Training Center comes alive after almost 80 days of sporting scarcity. June frankly mark the restart of activities, with the organization of a female elite internship kitefoil They Kite and selection of teams that will comprise the Pole Changing Nacra17 France in September. The youth of Nacra15 are also in the starting blocks.
The health crisis was not without consequences on our operations: report of the Olympic Games a year and a stand-by for the France team Nacra17, elimination of international competitions, stop the drives in Nacra15, runners return home them, some far from the metropolis; late spring regattas Diam24 and cancellation of the Tour Sailing.
This new situation has upset programs and must now find new springs for further progress, despite the absence of international meetings and strong sporting goals in the short term. But just being able to return to sea is already a source of motivation for these athletes used to spend 200 days a year on the water.
June therefore comes as a liberation.

The Nacra15 back
Funny spring for four young crews Nacra15 forming the Hope Center of the Grande Motte! All pupils or students, they spent their period of confinement shared between the dematerialized during monitoring and remote physical preparation provided by Romaric Linares.

For others, their coach and Nicolas Jégou, the recovery took place this week in Onefly (dinghy foil). From June 2, they will find their favorite catamaran.
Leaving his mark
Finally, this period of confinement has given birth to a new concept imagined by our neighbor and friend Kito de Pavant: “The Claws of the Lion” series of records from Port Camargue, in Aigues Mortes bay. All series represented EMC are eager to rub the small course of 22,000 christened the “Tartine Cup” to try to establish a reference time. Stay tuned ….
