The Maine as playground

The poster has a fragance of the past. Swimmers slide in the middle of the waves and the foam. It could be a trial in high-sea but, in the background, there is the profile of a castle familiar to Angers inhabitants. The descent of the Maine will take place on June 15th for its 13th edition. The Aquarius club organizes that competition which, with others like triathlon or rowing, recalls to the inhabitants the Maine is, if the weather is clement, part of their "playground".

The sky triggered a change in the program. The Aquarius club originally planned two parts. The morning was dedicated to sportsmen on 2.5 km and the afternoon was due to be more peaceful but longuer : 4.5 km from Saint-Aubin island to La Rochefoucauld square. But, given the temperature, the medias reported lately that a single race will go from the Jean Moulin bridge at 2.00 pm and will finish at Tabarly embankment, 3.5 km further. Whatever be the formula, wetsuits will be compulsory.
