On the night of Sunday 3 / Monday 4 April 2016, the “Rabouilleuse-École de Loire” association’s boathouse, boats and restoration equipment were destroyed by arson. The GRAINE Centre network has launched an appeal for donations in support of the association, which is devoted to promotion of yachting on the Loire and an environmental approach to the Loire Valley site. Volunteer support groups are mobilising around the association’s single employee, Clément Sirgue, to keep activities on track, in particular organisation of the “La Petite Mussette” festival, the 3rd edition of “Plaisirs de Loire” (Pleasures of the Loire), in May 2016.
After ten years of cruises, the Amarante boat found itself back in the Candes St Martin boatyard – this time for a real makeover at the hands of Louis Delaporte. Following four months of hard work between January and April 2016, and a series of major modifications, it has been enlarged and refitted to increase comfort, quality and passenger capacity and facilitate handling under low flow conditions.
From 7 to 11 March 2016, Agrocampus Ouest in Angers hosted the inter-schools of landscaping workshop organised with the support of the Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development. Master’s 1 students from Angers, Blois, Bordeaux, Paris and Lille set to work on a subject set by the Angers Region’s Urban-Planning Agency (AURA), with a view to sketching out proposals for development of the Mayenne-Sarthe-Maine confluence site.
A model of a three-master, the “Zélé”, has just been installed in one of the museum’s exhibition rooms, specially refitted to house it. It was originally exhibited as part of the temporary exhibition “From the Loire to the sea, bargees in the King’s service”, which focused on Loire bargees’ and fishermen’s enlistment in the French Royal Navy in the late 18th century, during the American War of Independence (1775-1783).
