PROGRAM:
 


Meeting in front of Vasil Levski Stadium at 00:30 and departure from Sofia at 01:00.
Arrival around 07:30 in Ormos Panagias. We stop for coffee and breakfast and buy fish from the local fish market, then head to Talata Camping, which is located on the southernmost part of the Sithonia peninsula.
We unload the equipment and kayaks and after a short break we will start the training program.
Before sunset we return to the campsite.

 

The place is particularly suitable for training due to the geographical location. It is close to the open sea where there will be waves and wind and sheltered beaches where the water will be calm.

 


We run the training program.

 


We will be available for the final steps of the training.
At 13.00 we all together collect the equipment, wash and load the kayaks on the trailers and around 15.30 we leave back to Bulgaria. We will stop for a quick bite to eat in Nikiti and continue.
Expected arrival in front of Vasil Levski Stadium, Sofia is around 23.00.

 

Note: The organisers reserve the right to change the programme depending on weather conditions in order to maximise the safety of participants.
