NEIL STOKES In Catalonia rowing goes way back. A regatta was held here over 100 years ago, so there is a long tradition, but it never gained much importance as a sport. That is due to the fact that there are not many places you can do it.” Yet, Banyoles is one of those places…Details
We were very happy to help Canadian master rower Peggy McBride realise a unique personal ambition: to row at every Olympic rowing venue. At this time in Banyoles lake.

- 2016 is the 11th time I have been on training camp to Banyoles, I choose to bring the Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club back to Banyoles every year for many reasons. We are looked after very well by Agenda, they go out of their way to help and accommodate all of our requests. The weather in Banyoles is always temperate, so we can guarantee good water, the facilities are excellent so we can do what ever training we need, including great cycle rides away from the lake. Lake Banyoles is a stunning environment to train in and you can’t help but be inspired training on the 1992 Olympic course, we will continue to return.Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club

Cambridge University Boat Club has been coming to Banyoles in early January for over 20 years. The lake provides ideal training and testing conditions for rowing, exactly what we need 3 months before BNY Mellon Boat Race. The facilities at CNB are extensive so we can continue cardiovascular training on land as well as strength and conditioning work in the weights room. Off the water the team can relax in one of the many cafes or experience the historic Old Town.Steve Trapmore – CUBC Head Coach
