The Moorings stellt Luxuskatamaran für BRITISH VIRGIN ISLAND SUP CHALLENGE

Bad Vilbel, August 22, 2019 -The Moorings supports the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLAND SUP CHALLENGE again this year when the Interboot and the Hamburg Boat Show send SUP athletes to the Caribbean again. The SUP Team Challenges take place for the second time at the international water sports exhibition in Friedrichshafen and at the boat fair in Hamburg. Under the motto "On the boards - ready - go", teams complete a skill course in the SUP test pool. The best-placed SUP team qualifies for the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLAND SUP CHALLENGE, which will be co-organized by The Moorings and the BVI Tourist Board in June 2020. The global yacht charter company The Moorings accompanies the combined paddle and sailing tour with a 48-foot luxury catamaran that serves as a safety island and floating accommodation for the participants and companions.

For a week, the two best teams of the SUP Team Challenge paddle daily stages from ten to 15 kilometers from island to island in the Caribbean island state. Idyllic and tropical locations such as Cooper Island, Norman Island, Jost van Dyke or The Baths are on the program of the finalists.

“Sailing and stand-up paddle boarding complement each other ideally. The board is simply taken along on the deck of the yacht and can be easily launched for paddling in a beautiful bay or on the ocean. And the British Virgin Islands are a great area with numerous islands that are located a short distance from each other. White palm-fringed beaches and wonderful anchorages invite you to be explored with the SUP. There is also a steady trade wind and warm temperatures between 26 and 30 degrees Celsius, ”enthuses Ingela Wilhelm, Marketing Manager at The Moorings.

Anyone who is 18 years old and physically fit on the SUP can register for the SUP Team Challenge. Paddling will take place at the Interboot in Friedrichshafen from September 21 to 29, 2019 in Hall B1 and at the Hamburg Boat Show from October 23 to 27, 2019 in Hall B7.
