Bråviken Cold Feet Paddle Race 2021
Welcome to the 7th annual classic cold water paddle race. Attracting the fast and the tough since 2014.
Seven years ago the idea came up to organise a late season paddle race just before winter and ice. It has since grown into an annual race open to all skill levels that support the advancement and enjoyment for paddling sports in Sweden. Fighting the cold together with like-minded paddlers in the waters of Bråviken is followed by a simple gathering around the fire while savoring warm food and a sip of hot punsch. The feeling of warmth returning to your feet is such a great sensation!

Date: Saturday, 27 November 2021
Paddlers meeting: 10.45
Prize ceremony: 13.45

The Bråviken waters are often quite choppy. Waves build quickly when wind is from east or west and can get surprisingly big.
Choose between 15, 10 or 5 km. The 5 km course is close to land. The 10 and 15 km courses are more exposed and cross the waterway twice into Norrköping Harbour and is frequently trafficked by big ships. Watch out!
A map is good to have even if you know the area. With poor visibility you will get lost.
GPX files for your navigation device can be downloaded.
