>>> Registration 2022<<< INSTRUCTIONS
The marathon is meant for Estonian Champion candidates as well as all other people who love to paddle and spend an interesting day paddling in Estonian waters. Estonian Champion titles will be given to the best.

Gathering will be on the 3. September 2022 10.00-12.00. Start will be at 13.00.
All participants under 18 must have a waver signed by their trainer or parent at the registration desk. Swimming skills and kayaking experience are mandatory and each participant will confirm it by signing the waver at the registration desk. Rescue and safety equipment is compulsory (life-jacket, pump, smoke signal, mobile phone in a water-proof package). The equipment is also sold at the registration desk. The equipment is checked by the organisers at the registration desk. Safety is taken care of by the motor boats but each participant must know basic rescue techniques as the rescuers may not reach each participant immediately in case of emergency and the organisers do not take responsibility for participants who have overestimated their skills.
