With a new record number of almost 140 paddlers, we were able to spend a wonderful summer day in Lucerne. The participants and visitors already came to the Lido with a huge beam. The new route allowed us to stay the whole day at Lido Lucerne. “With the sandy beach a real holiday feeling comes up” – so the visitors:-) Not only that, but also a lot of sweat flowed with the participants. They fought for every meter! The spectators, who were allowed to experience the race up close, also became aware of this. The new route led the paddlers not only to the spectator jetties, but even partly back to the beach, where a short distance had to be “run”. This led to a sensational atmosphere and to SUPer photos.
