Sailing Clubs named as Olympic Pre-Games Training Camp venues    

'.'    ISAF ©
Over 20 different Sailing Clubs around Great Britain are available to sailing teams wishing to take part in a Pre-Games Training Camp ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) is offering a Financial Award of up to £25,000 to National Olympic Committees (NOC) and National Paralympic Committees (NPC) choosing to take advantage of some of the best sailing facilities in Great Britain.

Twenty-one sailing venues across Great Britain have been chosen for inclusion in the London 2012 Pre-Games Training Camp Guide, including three facilities based on the Weymouth and Portland waters where the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition will take place.

NOCs and NPCs can take advantage of a Financial Award of up to £25,000 offered by LOCOG to assist with the expenses of venue hire, accommodation and support services for Pre-Games Training Camps.

Sebastian Coe, Chair of LOCOG, says teams can expect a warm welcome, 'What we can guarantee, apart from excellent facilities, is that the communities throughout the UK will welcome you with open arms, keen to play their part in a great Games. We are all looking forward to welcoming you in the lead up to 2012'.

In addition to the 21 sailing venues, 14 venues have been selected as venues for Paralympic Sailing in the London 2012 Paralympic Pre-Games Training Camp Guide.

Anne Mcguire, British Minister for Disabled People, says, 'I'm delighted for each of the facilities that are included in the Guide. We're looking forward to seeing elite athletes from around the world training here in advance of the Paralympic Games, raising the profile of the Games and engaging with local communities across the UK.'
