What a year that is just coming to an end. The whole SUP community is now hoping that this was the last lockdown and that the vaccinations will work. Everyone wants to go SUP racing again!
The EURO TOUR has just published its tour schedule for 2021. It should start in April in France, on April 4 in Ardèche. Let’s hope very much that this date can be taken. Unfortunately, as things stand now, we can only hope that we can start the season in April. But nobody can guarantee that at the moment. At the EURO TOUR, however, one seems to be sure of the matter.
Here is their official release:
After an unprecedented year for everyone, we were more than happy to be able to run 4 successful events in 2020. To say that finalizing the 2021 calendar has been a challenge its more than an understatement. As always, we present to you a calendar of confirmed events with actual dates and places. All the events have signed contracts were all the financials and logistics have been sorted out, so you as a rider will only have to worry about which of the 13 different countries or 14 events you will go to; we take care of the rest. With some brand new and exciting locations this promises to be our best year yet.

Missing from this list are a few events that due to the extraordinary situation have not been able to secure all the necessary arrangements to formalize their inclusion in the calendar. We however, are loyal to our long time supporters and are positive that we will be able to increase this calendar over the next few months.
We are currently waiting for more details as there is nothing posted so far on the EURO TOUR website.
