You should have received the information by email if you have confirmed your participation to the Nautic Paddle: access to the Nautic halls on Saturday to collect your number, parking arrangements, briefing times... all the necessary practical information is available online.
Organized by Nautic Festival SA for the Nautic Paris Boat Show, the 11th Nautic Paddle is scheduled on December 5th.
The race will take place in Paris, with an exceptional setting on the Seine River between the National Library of France (Bibliothèque Nationale de France) and the port Javel Bas. 1000 riders, consisting of professionals and amateurs alike, are expected to be in attendance for the competition.
Reminder: since 2018, 14' boards are allowed to compete.
Route #1: “LEISURE” division. Approximate distance of 11 kilometers.
Route #2: “PRO” division. Distance of 14 kilometers with the additional challenge of a circuit around two islands: Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis.
It is possible to participate in the event solo or as a group (4 people maximum). In both cases, each participant will have their own paddle. Then, there will be a lottery to determine the individuals and teams selected to participate.
During the draw at the end of the pre-registration period, by registering as a team, if the team captain is selected, then all team members will be able to participate in the race. This choice allows you, if you are selected in the lottery, to be sure to experience the race alongside your loved ones.
Note that the race is run alone, everyone on their own board. The "big mamas" (boards that can hold 4 to 6 people) are only allowed for the partners of the race.
Registration fees are 70 euros including VAT per participant.
