Latvian Surfing and SUP Federation (LSSF) in collaboration with Ventspils Yacht Marina organises Latvian SUP Championship 2017 which will take place on 29-30 July in the territory of Ventspils Yacht Marina — 42 Medņu Street, Ventspils.
The course of competition: on 29 July — 200 m racing sprint and 5 km technical distance racing, but on 30 July — 14 km flat water distance racing. There are no restrictions in terms of participants’ age. However, participants under the age of 16 must be registered by their parents and the parents must be present during the competition.
Anyone interested may take part in this competition either with or without the relevant skills, yet participant’s state of health must be good enough to handle a high physical workload during the competition.
Registration for the competition will take place on the competition day by the main judge. Participants can register and take place in the competition after filling in the registration form and familiarising with the competition regulations.
Participants of the 12’6” board class in both groups will automatically qualify for World SUP and Paddleboard Championship which will take place throughout 1-10 September in Denmark.
Two best athletes of the 12’6” class in technical and flat water distance racing, as well as the winner of the racing sprint in each group will qualify for the World Championship.
