The organizer of Vega Challenge puts great emphasis on safety.
“Våttkort” is a certification and proves you have passed the Norwegian Paddle Foundation’s intro course or a higher graded course. This certification is required for participation in Vega Challenge and must be shown upon registration.
The boats provided are well equipped and quick so that none of our competitors will be out of sight during the race. All the boats will have divers on board that are ready to assist, should it be necessary. The boats also have radio communication between one another and to the responsible crew on land. The local sea rescue service will be attending the race if the number of competitors is above 100.
Heated tents and warm soup will be available when you cross the finish line at Vegstein.
In case of bad weather:
There will be alternative trails and distances in safer waters if the weather does not permit the race to be held in the original legs. Example: Vegstein – Røry – Vegstein. This will be announced on the homepage of Vega Challenge and other social media channels five days before the race. However, The race will be cancelled should the weather become too extreme.
