Yes I did it! The ultimate challenge twice in a row. I started with the 11 city tour NON-stop which means 220 kms of paddling through Duch canals, in one go without stopping. This year directly after the NON-stop I joined the second race with the all-tour athletes where you paddle the 220 kms in 5 days.
After doing last year the 5 days in a row I decided this year to challenge myself by adding the NON-stop before doing the 5 days. This year we had probably the roughest weather conditions ever since the 11-city. It was extremely windy, choppy and even lighting came along. It has been a hell of a (sometimes sweet) ride but even with my hands wrapped in blisters I would still do it all over.
Please stay tuned cause I will start to prepare crossing the Nord Sea alone by paddle board from Vinkeveen to England.
