Bertrand RINGOT, Maire de Gravelines et Conseiller départemental du Nord
In the heart of Le PAarc des Rives de l’Aa, the Olympic Regatta Venue « Albert Denvers » will host the European Rowing Juniors Championships from May 24th to May 27th 2018.
More than 500 athletes coming from 20 countries, some of whom would hopefully be part of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, will compete in this prestigious sporting international competition organized by the French Rowing Federation and Gravelines Rowing club.
It is my great pleasure to host all of them and I want to thank the local stakeholders for their mobilization.
City of Gravelines’ commitment to sport and major events is very important. And the European Rowing Juniors Championships simply confirms the importance attached to promote all the sports practices to the greatest number of people.
I welcome the involvement of the many volunteers, and especially the local Rowing Club of Gravelines, led by Jacques Decriem, which is actively involved in the organization of this successful event.
You can count on our full support
,Hope to meet you in Gravelines soon,
Mayor of Gravelines
Department Councilor for the Nord Department
