In July 2014 the President of Castrelo do Miño Rowing Club and Caldaria Board Direction invited António Rascão Marques (President of the Portuguese Rowing Federation) into a new challenge: to create a new Rowing Center in Spain.
In August 2014, this group went to Amsterdam to the World Rowing Championship to promote CERLAC – Centro de Entrenamiento de Remo de Laias, Arnoia e Castrelo. After this promotion there were a great number of teams and rowing clubs interested on this new project. The Netherlands became the first rowing team training at CERLA.
In the future, we’re expecting to host the Belarus National Team during a 40 days training camp followed for the British College Sir. William Borlase Grammar School. Also, in the summer, we’re expecting Australia Rowing Team just before the World Rowing Championship in France.
CERLA’s vision is to become one of the best Rowing Training Center where every team can train, complete their training programmes and test their performance. Surrounded by river Miño with superb conditions for rowing, great accommodation and conditions with the its famous Thermal Water with recognized quality for injuries’ recovering and wellbeing.
We hope to see you here, in Laias – Ourense – Spain.
