Security and equipment

All participants must declare that they are free of any physical troubles and that they are able to cover high physical demand for about 5 hours. Also every participant must declare that he/she is experienced in paddling at open sea conditions. Every participant has to agree and sign the liability waiver that will be found in the registration.

Safety is guaranteed with four boats. All participants have to use their own equipment, which has to be in secured and fully usable conditions, so it will not become a danger in using it, either for the participants or the organization.

Also in addition all participants must have the experience to be able to complete the distance in open sea conditions. The organization reserves the right to deny any participant to start a race, if the organization has the impression or there are obvious signs that either the participant or material is not able to finish the race, without a payback of the registration fee.

The following items are mandatory:

Technically proper equipment. Life vest must be worn. Leash must be worn.

We advise participants to have a GPS and mobile in the water resistant bag.
