Thank you all for your kind words, it is difficult to explain with a few words something that for me is so normal but to answer some questions I will tell you that the distance of the race is something similar to a mile and a half but they do it in four lengths with three changes in buoys, the race is close from the villages but they go out to the sea that is why sometimes the waves are large but the boats are light and resistant so a tragedy has never happened, and they do not carry lifeguards because that would prevent them from paddling fast, but there are always rescue boats nearby by if necessary
