Beim veröffentlichen der ASF Tour Daten ist uns ein Rennen aufgefallen das zu einer EURO SUP League gehört. Ich habe noch nie etwas davon gehört oder gelesen. Also fragte ich bei der ASF nach und habe prompt eine Antwort bekommen.

Die E.S.L. ist eine Rennserie von Giorgio Magi, dem Veranstalter der Italienischen SUP League. Im erestne Jahr sollen Rennen in Italien, Österreich und Slowenien zur Tour gehören.

Das Rule Book wurde mir ebenfalls zugeschickt welches ich unten in Englisch veröffentliche, beim Durchlesen sind mir aber ein paar Eckpunkte aufgefallen die ich hier auflisten will:

1. Die EURO SUP League ist eine non-profit Organisation mit dem Ziel eine private (?steht so im Wortlaut) SUP Serie zu gründen.
2. Man will den Sport in Europa mittels Inovation und Einbindung in anderen Events weiter verbreiten.
3. Klubs und Organisationen die dazu gehören wollen müssen aus dem Wassersport kommen und einen Mitgliedsbeitrag von EUR 250.- bezahlen
4. Die SUP Rennen werden in Beach Races und Longdistance Klassen unterteilt.
5. Alle Rennen werden auf 14’ gestartet
6. Altersklassen bis Ü 50

Dazu wird es natürlich ein Rankingsystem geben und alles was sonst noch dazu gehört.

Ich versuche ja bei solchen neuen Sachen immer enthusiastisch und neutral zu bleiben, aber es wird langsam echt schwer den Überblick zu behalten. Vielleicht ist es einfach mal Zeit für die „Stand Up Magazin SUP League Euro World Championships Challenge Tour“ Jetzt mal echt…!

Hier alles noch in Englisch:


Rule book 2019

1. Who are
Euro Sup League it’s a non-profit sports association created with the precise aim of creating a private sup circuit. The associations that participate in the Euro Sup League project undertake to respect its mission, operating methods and regulations of this document, operating for their event in total autonomy and responsibility, without reference to anybody or federal office if not to a work group in charge of managing rankings, regulations and calendars.

2. Mission

Our mission is the promotion and diffusion of the sport of stand up paddling in Europe through innovation, integrating this discipline with other sports specialties to create catchy and participated events.
To do this, each association will be free to include in its event any activity that it deems appropriate to promote the event and the sport on its territory, while keeping it as a main event the SUP RACE. Another fundamental objective is to highlight all athletes, none excluded, who will be considered in the European panorama for their value.

3. Adhere to E.S.L

To join E.S.L, are the sports clubs operating in the field of water sports. These associations must compulsorily complete a form for the request for affiliation to E.S.L available in the forms section of the website www. “Undercostruction” .com, and send all the documents requested to the email address of the circuit:
The affiliated club must also pay a membership fee that for the year 2019 has been quantified in 250 euro including: registration for the championship, charges for the creation of the event / race and management of the classification.
The associations will have to independently provide insurance for the event.

The events of Sup race are divided into beach race events (from minimum 7km to maximum 10km), in long distance events (from 10km up to 42km marathons), in downwind events (long distance run with wind and wave) and tecnical race (highly technical run with numerous turns). The type of event and the distance of the run must be clearly specified in the competition announcement (by the association, as well as the costs of participation in the event and the services offered to the athletes). The competition must also be open to all amateurs, who will be run in a dedicated match suitable for a less preparation. It will also be the responsibility of the organizing association to publish the race route and take care of the jury, timekeepers and secretariat (minimum guaranteed staff of 5 people), as well as take care to request all the necessary permits for the regular running of the event and ensure safety with obligatory presence of ambulance and support means in water.
Promotion events may be held concurrently associated with the sup race events, or they may be independent. These events must have as their purpose the promotion of the stand up paddling. However, they will be subject (especially if independent events) to the preventive and unappealable evaluation of E.S.L’s board of directors.
