Do you have the adventurous spirit in you? Do you enjoy competitive water sports? Come join a journey under the moonlight and stars on a paddle board! To most people, it is exhilarating enough to stand up on a paddle board and coast along the calm water. For others, controlling the board at night in a race takes it up another notch!
There are two races for competitors and different classifications for men, women and youth. For beginners, there is a 2 km Fun Race and for more serious boarders, there is a 4 km Pro Race. Both race lines are marked with buoys and have one single turning point.
The evening fun starts just before dusk when registration opens at Parco Ciani, an Italian restaurant on the waterfront of Lugano Bay. Skippers will have their meetings with their crew and then it’s go time! Although the event runs for about two and one half hours, the race itself takes under one hour.
As you paddle, you will be enjoying the night light scenery of the Casino Lugano, the plaza Piazza Manzoni and the LAC, the arts, music and performing arts center. Since the entire race runs alongside the coast of Lugano, do not let the spectacular views guide you off course!
A friendly competition is good for the soul!
