Kingfishers fly at one pace – fast and straight. Lets see if these guys can live up to their team name.
Whilst not only having a career on the water, and a whole lot of racing, survival and outdoor experience – we have some real hero’s on the race. Alberto and Joe have rescued a set of racers in another paddle race who were dehydrated, disoriented and in shock – they ditched non-essential gear and paddled them 30 miles to safety. This mentality is exactly what the Yukon 1000 needs – a race community that supports each other and is willing to put others safety ahead of their own race. Great work guys – you’re a valuable asset to the race.
