"Why go all the way to Guadeloupe?" I asked Nelo Surfski CEO Oscar Chalupsky.  "We sold a lot of skis there," he replied, "and it's a lot warmer than Porto!"  Oscar Chalupsky leaves his home Portugal on Saturday to fly, via Paris, to the Caribbean to take part in one of the longest downwind races in the world, Ze Race in Guadeloupe. 

And I suspect it's the "downwind" part that's the deciding factor that's attracting him there!

Dawid Mocke (South Africa) won the "Defis Kayak" race in Guadeloupe in perfect (though hot) conditions this weekend, with Dave Kissane (Aus) overcoming a slipping footplate to come in second from Benoit LeRoux (France).   Jaka Jazbec (Italy) came fourth.

Organisation for the Caribbean Mini Tour of 2008 is progressing smoothly.  Confirmed prize money of 4000 Dollars for the Soualiga Challenge in St Maarten and 8000 Euros for the Defis Guadeloupe is in place and negotiations are underway for a Tour sponsor to provide an overall cash incentive for the paddlers doing well in both races.

Hi and happy New Year to all from a windy Caribbean. Surfski paddling is starting to mature nicely over here and we have a full lineup of races for the year. So, here's a head's up for those who live locally, those who want to do some serious racing and for those who are planning a holiday in our area and would like to join in.
