Argentinian lovers of rafting ….

Germán Bavas tells us: “We are from San Juan, Argentina. Actually we don’t have access to a big or important river nearby, but anyway, we sent 3 teams to the Argentinian Rafting Championship!  We train in the lake or travel to the Mendoza River where we rent a boat from the AARAFT and ask a friend to use his paddles.

We do what we can, because we love this sport!
