In beautiful Vesterålen, Norway, the Arctic Sea Kayak Race has been ongoing for a week with different activities. Today was the final day with the ICF World Cup Surfski race as the main event.
Last year’s winner Sean Rice together with Dawid Mocke and Joep van Bakel was the favourites for todays race. Sean reported to be ill for some day and had some concerns but he felt much better this morning.
Straight from the start Dawid, Sean and Joep took the top three positions. Today Sean was the strongest. Sean was really happy after the finish. His plan and tactic worked out very well.
