Mylor Yacht Harbour (MYH) has been named as an official training centre in the build-up to the 2012 Olympic Games.
Mylor was announced as one of the centres to be included in a pre-London on-line guide to be made available to all national Olympic and Paralympic committees from countries competing in this year’s Beijing Olympics.
MYH owner Roger Graffy commented: “In Olympian parlance, this is definitely Mylor’s own gold medal. It’s a resounding vote of confidence in all that Mylor has to offer in the wake of its £5 million development programme over the past ten years.
“There could be over 40 other countries looking for alternative facilities. At Mylor, we can offer all the physical and technical benefits and support facilities for a primary training camp, while the layout and wind and tidal patterns of Falmouth Bay effectively mimic those of Weymouth Bay.”
A special Olympics news section will be built into the Mylor Yacht Harbour website with regular updates on who has been and who is coming.
