The British Virgin Islands are a group of over 50 islands in the Caribbean (about 15 of them are inhabited). They are a perfect destination for Stand Up Paddling: the temperature is 25-30°C year round, the water is equally warm and turquoise, the scenery is spectacular. Most islands are within paddling distance of each other and it’s a great place for downwinders, too.

On Saturday, the final race of the NP SUP Bavarian 4 Lake Trophy took place: the Chiemsee Marathon. Different from last year, where the weather was 3°C and snow/rain, the lake showed itself at its best to the 55 Stand Up Paddlers. Cloudless sky, the beautiful mountain backdrop not hidden in fog for a change, reasonably warm at 18°C and some nice wind of 15-30km further out on the lake.
On September 16th, the Surfin‘ Venice SUP Race took place in beautiful Venice, Italy. Let’s start by saying that registering for this race was most likely the cheapest way ever to do a full day of sightseeing in (very expensive) Venice….but probably also the most exhausting and patience-testing.
