UKRAINE: Wild water kayaking | Wildwater Canoe – Crazy Wildwater Kayak Racing #kayaking
Crazy Wildwater Kayak Racing in Ukraine – Ukraine Tours & Sport Travel

Wildwater canoeing is exceptionally physically demanding discipline that tests athletes technique and speed to the limits.

We offer wild water kayak tours for beginners and professional all around the globe. – The most craziest kayak pros we met here in the Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine.

The objective of the sport is to go from the starting point of the course on a river to the end point as quickly as possible. Typical wildwater venues consist of Class II – IV whitewater, in contrast to extreme racing, which takes place on more difficult streams. Match competitions generally consist of a classic and a sprint race. A classic course is 4 to 6 miles (6–10 km) in length or 10 to 35 minutes in duration, while the Sprint is between 500 and 750 meters and lasts around 2 minutes. Although there is some specialization, the vast majority of racers compete in both classic and sprint.

Competitors are placed in classes based on gender and boat type as follows:
K1 – solo kayak, male
K1W – solo kayak, female
C1 – solo canoe, male
C1W – solo canoe, female
C2 – tandem canoe.

The competitors are numbered within their class based on results from previous races and compete in reverse order (best paddler last), usually at one-minute intervals. To race successfully, paddlers must possess refined technical skill, as well as strength, endurance, aerobic capacity, and the ability to “read” whitewater.

Whitewater racing is also practiced by competing teams; each team is made by a group of three competitors belonging to the same class.

Whitewater racing started in Europe with the International Canoe Federation being formed and having the first World Championships in Switzerland in 1949. Since then, there has been a World Championships every two years. Since 2011 there is a sprint only world championships, with sprint and classic being contested every other (even) year.

About Carpathian Mountains (Ukraine & Poland)
The Carpathian Mountains form a 1,500km-long range in Central and Eastern Europe. They stretch west to east in an arc from the Czech Republic to Romania. The Tatra range between Slovakia and Poland is a national park and has several peaks above 2,400 meters. More than half of the Carpathian range lies in Romania, where spruce forests are home to brown bears, wolves and lynxes.

Vodkatrain ist alles über die Freiheit und Flexibilität, so können Sie entscheiden, was Sie sehen, essen und Erfahrung auf Ihrer Reise, zahlen die lokalen Preise auf dem Weg möchten…

Etabliert und über die Grenzen hinaus bekannt wurde der Vodkatrain im Jahr 2010 als die Agentur SMS Frankfurt die größte Reisegruppe mit internationalen Sportlern für den Trans-Siberian Express organisierte.
Einige Fakten und Details nachfolgend!

Drei Wochen mit zwölf Nationen
auf dem Vodka Train

Die erlebnisreichste Aktivtour des Sommers

Größte Vodkatrain Tour von SMS Frankfurt durch Russland über die Mongolei nach China abgeschlossen

Moskau, 4. August 2010 – Vom 12. bis zum 30. Juni waren knapp 100 Abenteuer- und Sportbegeisterte aus zwölf Ländern mit dem Zug, zu Fuß, per Bus und Fähre unterwegs – auf der Vodkatrain Tour 2010. Dieses Sommer-Angebot beinhaltete unter anderem eine Bootsparty auf der Moskwa, Geländelauf entlang der Eurasischen Grenze, Badestop am eiskalten Baikalsee und Übernachtung in exklusiven Mongolischen Jurten. Es war die bisher größte organisierte Kultur-, Sport- und Adventure Tour auf der Trans-Sibirischen-Eisenbahn.

Start für alle Teilnehmer, unter anderem aus Australien, Barbados, China, Deutschland, Großbritannien, Irland, Kanada und den USA, war Moskau – am 20. Jahrestag der russischen Unabhängigkeit. Mit einer Bootsparty auf der Moskwa läuteten die Veranstalter eine einzigartige, herausfordernde und motivierende Reise für die internationalen Teilnehmer ein. Auf der ersten Etappe ging es mit der Transsibirischen Eisenbahn über Kazan nach Jekaterinburg und an die „Grenze von Eurasien“. Sightseeing und Geländeläufe waren an jeder Station Programm. Spaß und Sport paarten die euphorischen Teilnehmer aus aller Welt auch beim Picknick an der eurasischen Grenze, als sich die Hälfte der Gruppe auf europäischem, die andere Hälfte auf asiatischem Terrain zuprostete.
Irkutsk war die nächste erlebnisreiche Station der Vodkatrain Tour. Ab hier legten die internationalen Reisenden, nach der Fahrt entlang der historischen Trans-Sib-Strecke am Baikalsee, eine zweitägige Pause ein. Kaum einer der Teilnehmer ließ sich das Bad im sieben Grad kalten See entgehen, der als verjüngende Heilquelle bekannt ist. Mit der Fähre ging es auf die Insel Olchon zum erneuten Geländelauf, der Unterkunft in traditionellen Holzhütten mit Folklore am Abend.
Die Weiterfahrt mit dem Zug von Irkutsk in die Mongolei war pures Kulturerlebnis: unberührte Natur, filmreife Szenen in abenteuerlichen öffentlichen Zügen, Geländeläuf in ein abgelegenes Kloster und Schamanenfeuertanz in einem exklusiven Hotel in der Mongolei mit Zimmern in schicken mongolischen Jurten.
„I don’t think I will ever recover from the train. The journey emotionally and physically was the best ever” schrieb eine Teilnehmerin aus Australien nach Ihrer Rückkehr an den Veranstalter Jürgen Schreiter von SMS Frankfurt. „You helped make it a trip of a lifetime for me” so ein weiterer Teilnehmer und “the Vodka Train was an exciting, enjoyable and memorable holiday/adventure. It was everything and more than what we were expecting…”.

Die finale Etappe ging von der Mongolei nach China. Die kosmopolitische Gruppe war nicht nur in der Wüste Gobi, sie konnte auch faszinierende Bilder des Hängenden Klosters in Datong und der umliegenden Grotten machen. Der Abschied, nach einem Spaziergang über die Chinesische Mauer, fiel schwer. Einige Begeisterte der Vodkatrain Tour 2010 haben nach ihrer Rückkehr in der Heimat schon erste „Revival-Treffen“ geplant, auf denen sie sich noch viel über diese Tour erzählen werden.
