We all remember the epic ICE Race from last year. It was an ICF World Cup with international participation. We had the Spanish Juniors there and big names like Titouan Puyo and many more. We were all looking forward to another great event even bigger than 2022.
Then in October last year a disaster hit the organizers: Their lake front SUP Center “Honu SUP” burnt down. The owners and operators Nici and Dani Reinhart were on a vacation when they got the news. The devastation was big and the two did not see how they would be able to continue. With the help from the SUP Community they were able to raise some money and their landlord, the City of Thun did recognize the great work they are doing for the community.
Now the Honu SUP is back in business with a provisional structure. This weekend is the grand opening with the ICE Race. We all understand that with all that happened the race will not be as big as it was last year, but we are sure this year is just a trial and with the Honu Center back on its feet we are confident that Dani and Nici are already thinking of 2024.
If you have not registered you still have a chance to be part of this race taking place on one of the most beautiful race courses in the world.
GREAT memories from 2022
