R2AK 2018 – would I go?

Så här skall en regattapromo se ut :-)

Would I go?

It’s been said the winner-take-all nature of R2AK isn’t fair.

“How can a kayak compete with a carbon fiber sailing rocket?”

Honestly we have no idea, but a few folks did it anyway.

Why? Because the root of the R2AK isn’t the winning but the doing – which is easier to say if you didn’t have a chance of winning anything.

This is how it works:

You finish. The greatest glory of all is going to be your first night in Ketchikan, telling stories not making them. Value is uncertain but damn high.

If you’re first you get $10,000, but you have to figure out how to get it off the wood.

Second place get a pretty good set of steak knives.

    Grym promo. Sällan finkulturen får plats i seglingsvärlden men här är det spot on att alludera till Werner Herzog och hans återkommande mässande om mänsklig galenskap och naturens krafter. Här särskilt till en av hans dokumentärer, Grizzly man, som utspelar sig i Alaska. Rekommenderas.
