“ Cheerfulness in adversity! (or break out the rum). ”
Carmen is racing to be the first Yukoner to finish and also to celebrate her 40th year with a nice camping trip with her friend Simon. We’re honoured to have her as the only local on the race this year. She has completed the Yukon River Quest a number of times (with top placements, including a 1st place) and she may just have most paddling time on the Yukon river from the competitor list.
Her race partner Simon is experienced in extreme races both in the UK and Yukon combined with an impressive adventure CV, both personally and professionally.
The team met whilst doing the Yukon River Quest and are keen to conquer the ultimate paddle racing challenge together. A proven paddling partnership that will be put to the test in this joint expedition.
