Banyoles lake presents one of the best water surfaces in the world for canoeing. This was the general opinion repeated at the 2010 canoeing world championship. It was said by athletes and trainers, relations, journalists, etc. from all over the world who stayed in our city for 10 days. Another point these visitors emphasised were the human resources in the city: the friendship and cordiality given to those visiting and practising sports on the lake is another of our characteristics. The chance to organise this race provides the opportunity for more countries consider us as a destination, apart from those already planning their annual stays at Banyoles. Countries with cold climates and which cannot count on a water surface in the winter, and have this here. All of the above is supplemented with the excellent and complete facilities of Banyoles Swimming Club, also adapted for disabled people. Tourist sport is another of the attractions, as the current framework surrounding the lake is unbeatable for practising it all the year round.
