The start at the Aterra Wave Challenge 2013

The first race is Vågryttaren (the Waverider) in my hometown of Göteborg on the Swedish West Coast. It is planned the week after the Eurochallenge in Alicante so you are able to do both races. The second race is also the new race in the Cup, the Kalmar Surfski Wave Challenge, in the city of Kalmar on the Swedish south east coast. It is great fun to have Kalmar in the cup. They have good downwind conditions in the strait of Kalmar and they have started to focus more on surfski racing in the Kalmar Canoe club lately. They have also put in some prize money into the race! Then it’s the Femöreracet, beautiful located south of Stockholm, coming up. Followed by the Aterra Wave Challenge, a downwind race in the strait between Denmark and Sweden. The classic Seamasters has the status as the national champs this year.
