Plans for National Sailing Performance Centre on the UNIL/EFPL Campus take shape
Swiss Sailing and the University of Lausanne (UNIL) this week signed a letter of intent to establish the National Sailing Performance Centre on the UNIL/EPFL Campus in Dorigny. A feasibility study has been launched by Swiss Sailing, UNIL and EPFL, with the aim of determining by June 2021 how such a project could be implemented.
Currently, sailing is one of the only sports that does not have a national performance centre. The Dorigny site provides the important conditions to develop this sport and the skills of its athletes and offers excellent training conditions. Since this spring, national junior and elite athletes have been using the UNIL/EPFL University Sports facilities, and in particular the water sports centre, for their training.
For the researchers of UNIL and EPFL, this would be a fantastic opportunity to develop projects in the fields of sports science and technology in collaboration with a prominent sports partner.
