We will start the event on Friday afternoon, when there will be a movie night in Kamp Koren. The movie night will start at 21:00. Visitors can look forward to nature and adventure short films. This year you can look forward the continuation of Balkan rivers tour (now at 3) and their transformation in to Balkan rivers defence, and the results of the struggle against damning of rivers in the Balkans.
The presentation will be given by Rok Rozman, winner of the world paddle awards, in a an outdoor setting of camp Koren. Definitely a screening worth attending :).
Saturday (26th May 2018):
The main day, a mass start quali, head2head, head4head, grande finale, music, beer and more…
First we have an all student descent down the calmer part of the emerald river from Kobarid to Tolmin, enjoying the river and the sites. And all for a good cause.
At the end a small meal at camp Gabrje and of we go back to camp Koren, Kobarid for the nightly kayak combat for the title of Soča river Knight.
This year we are going to start of at 19.00 with a mass qualification where all the competitors race down to claim their spot in the final.
At 20.00 we start with this years new thing, Prijon’s 2B double kayak head-4-head race where you will be able to test yourself, your partner, the river and the new 2B kayak what is sure to be something special.
With qualifications complete and the ticker ticking 21.30 we begin with a head-2-head finaluntil 22.00 when we end the competition with a grande finale.
At 23.00 at night we knight the next Soča river Knight, and find out who won the raffle (grand prize is a brand new PRIJON KOKAIN (a kajak nothing ilegal) ), and finish with an old kayaking tradition, a party with local beer and music.
SO, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, book the date, set a reminder because this is a race you definitely should not miss!
