Thanks all,
I will collect more detail and get back to you.

Pls understand that this is the very first attempt for paddlers in Russia, and organization cannot be perfect.
Anyway, you'll be stoked to be there in Russia.

JC won't paddle a Storm.....how about teaming up with TI on a 2 man?

All kidding aside, I think it's great that the sport is growing and opportunities for racing outriggers are now nearly worldwide. I hope that the race happens and there's a good turnout for it.
