The Nautic SUP Paris Crossing, organised by Nautic to open the Nautic Paris Boat Show from the 8th -16th December 2012 in Porte de Versailles, has become one of the leading international events in this fast-growing sport.

You could therefore see on the Seine: Kai Lenny, the golden boy, two-time world Stand-Up champion in the waves, as well as the current leader of the world championship SUP Race, the rustproof Eric Terrien, winner of the previous years’ races, the legendary Robby Naish in person, and Antoine Albeau, the 19-time world windsurfing champion voted ‘sailor of the year’ in 2010.

France’s national sea rescue organisation the Société Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer will be overseeing the safety measures.
