We Set New Standards

We set the stage for an unforgettable Master event with numerous Danish and international paddlers participating. Our aim is to set new standards for future World Masters events.
We want to show the international Masters paddlers that Denmark has a lot to offer in matters of number of participants, competitiveness and, not least, good spirits.

If you have not participated in a masters race before you have the chance here to row a canoe marathon in professional surroundings and of international standard.

Notice: You don't need to be an  experienced competitive paddler to participate; we would love to see all enthusiastic paddlers participate no matter your experience or your preferred boat type.

The open Masters competitions are included as a part of the entire official event.
The Masters races will take place Wednesday and Thursday. You are welcome to use the course from Monday. The Viking Lounge is open from Tuesday.
