Monkton Bluefriars
Notes about Nantes - France

Training | Head Races | Regattas

This event has a website.

There is a Google map for this event.

The Monkton Easter training camp is based at the University of Nantes rowing club, which is inside one of the several university campuses in the city. It does not have a particular postal address, so the best way of finding it is to look at the Google map. You will need to zoom in as the scale on the original map is not very helpful.

If coming by Car, the only entrance you can use is off the roundabout at point E on the map, where you cross over the tram tracks at the roundabout into a one-way fairly narrow road. After about 100 m you turn left into the University down the road labelled 'Base Nautique UNA' or 'Aviron'. You then drive for about 300 m passing university buildings. Drive on until you reach two car parks on your left, and a closed gate ahead of you. The boathouse complex is then on your left.

If you want to leave the car outside the university campus, park near the bridge over the River on Boulevard des Belges. (see map). There are some steps down to the river and the north-western corner of the bridge. This option is not recommended.

The boathouse itself is at K on the map.

The best way of contacting people on the training camp is mobile phone.
