With our official partner Starboard SUP France, we have decided to measure the carbon footprint of all the competitors' travels at the Nautic Paddle 2018.
We therefore contacted them by email to inquire about this subject: transportation means used, number of miles to access the start of the race, etc.
Ultimate goal: with the data collected, make our environmental impact 10 times positive by planting mangroves in Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park (Myanmar).
Merci encore à Starboard SUP pour ce très beau projet !
Note: As indicated in the notice of race, the Leisure waiting list includes the first 180 names in order of draw and the Pro list the first 30. If you do not see your name, it means that your position is located beyond 780th place (Leisure) or 130th place (Pro).
1) For the selected ones: on Monday October 8, you will receive an email including a link allowing you to pay the participation fees and to finalize your registration. If 48 hours later, you have not received the message (check your spam box!), please contact us at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be careful, you will have until October 22 at midnight to register!
2) After October 22, we will contact each person on the 2 waiting lists (you may still have a little chance!), following the order of ranking, to complete the list of registered participants.
