Funding of $1.32 million has been allocated to enable renovation of the Pole France de Voile, the French Sailing Center located in Marseille, France. The project is designed to help with the French Olympic team’s preparations ahead of the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in the summer of 2021 as well as a home Olympic Games in Paris 2024.
The French National Sport Agency, which launched in April 2019 with the target of improving the country’s performance at the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, reports that “this reconstruction project aims to provide France with modern and unique infrastructure for high-level preparation and high sport performance.”
The renovated center is located in the immediate vicinity of the area that will be used for the sailing competitions at the Paris 2024 Olympics. The program for the reconstruction of the center was developed alongside the French Sailing Federation and the director of the French Olympic team.
