8.565 km. That is how far the 400 participants of the biggest 24-hour SUP relay event in the world, the Red Bull Midsummer Vikings in Copenhagen, Denmark, paddled this weekend under tough viking conditions!
First and final lap
The Grand Depart (first lap) is for all 400 paddlers. Like at the Tour de France, all paddlers paddle the first 500 meters together before the actual start for the competing paddlers. The final lap, called the Champagne Lap, is also for all paddlers. At 13.00 Sunday afternoon, we set off at a low speed to finalize the Red Bull Midsummer Vikings.
A new event this year was the Social Friday where teams on Naish mega SUP boards battled on a 200 meter course around the lagoon, a nice BBQ
