Before long, Nyborg Marina will have an addition of a new multipool, a new multihouse and new storage facilities for water sports and triathlon. The new and quite unique water sports facility can be described as a sports centre on and by the water. Here, it will be possible to do a number of various water sports – moreover in seawater that is 5 to 8 degrees warmer than the surrounding seawater.
Multipool with warm water and compressed air wave
The multipool of 1,250 m² will be divided into a shallow family pool and a larger and deeper activity pool. By the family pool will be constructed playtime facilities, paddling pool and workout equipment. The activity pool can be used for many different activities such as swim bars, kayak polo court, “water climbing”, diving court and diving activities on the bottom of the pool. The activity pool will have a compressed air wave feature that makes it possible to create rough water which is important when you are training surfing, stand up paddle and kayak. A wooden deck of a total of 1,300 m² around the multipool’s two parts provides room for social interaction, sun steps and diving tower. The wooden deck has ramps to ensure access for the disabled.
Multihouse and storage for kayakers and triathletes
The multipool is the actual activity area that can be compared to the sports floor of a regular sports hall. The support features for the users of the multipool will be housed in a new multihouse of 420 m². The house is equipped with gym, changing rooms and bath facilities, common room, kitchen as well as meeting rooms and communication room. The multihouse will have an addition of an unheated storage facility of 410 m² where kayaks and triathlon gear can be stored. The storage facility will also have a workshop for repairs and preparation of gear.
All locals can freely use the coming water sports facility during opening hours. A long line of associations and clubs and several educational institutions with activities in, on and by the water will also be regular users.
The project is developed with inspiration from the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities’ special efforts regarding building water sports facilities directed a many different activities. The project in Nyborg is the first in Denmark to gather a wide group of people active in water sports in the same outdoor facility.
