Where to follow the 2017 Euro RaftingChamps

There are a number of places you can follow this year’s Euro Rafting Champs. So, depending on how good your internet connection is and/or how much time you have – here are the options:

ERC Nis 2017

Euro Cup Nis was organized on the river Nisava, from May 12 through May 14.

On this already familiar course there has been a World Cup in 2009 and 8 Euro Cups. In addition to the ideal, sunny and warm weather of 27o C, a sufficient amount of water was enabled by the hydro plant like the previous nine years. A total of twelve teams took part from four countries.

The best result among men and the victory in all disciplines showed team Gimpex Straža from Slovenia. The girls from the Adventure Net team also dominated as first in all disciplines. A very young and promising female crew that has shown a great potential is Atom Kozloduj.

Race Rules in your language?

Recently we have uploaded the IRF Race Rules in Russian – this will be a huge help to many of the countries that can understand Russian, to have the rules in a language they may understand better than English. Thanks must go to the Russian Rafting Federation for this – thank you!

Has anyone else translated the Race Rules into their home language? If so, please send them through so we can make them accessible to others who would benefit from them.

A Spanish version would be excellent – so many people would be appreciative of that!
