With the foundation’s support, young rowers, in particular, are to be given the opportunity to grow their talent. The Club Nautique Aviron de Laval (CNLA) rowing club is located in Laval in the Pays de la Loire region in France.
The adjacent Mayenne river offers excellent training conditions for roughly 220 club members. The majority of rowers is under the age of 20, and the support programme is extremely successful. Some young CLNA talents have already participated in regional, national and international rowing competitions.
