SUP the Yukon – 24YukSUP

We had a mail from Ben who is planning for a Stand UP Paddling Guinness record. Shooting for 200 miles in 1 day along the Yukon river.
The Yukon River is a quintessential waterway in the Northern Hemisphere’s far edge containing 2000 seemingly endless miles before arriving Alaska’s Baltic Sea coastline. It’s been the mode of transport for Gwich’ins, Klondike gold seekers, River Quest enthusiasts, and kayakers elevating the bar for distances possible in the 24 hour interval. It also happens to be amongst the most scenic places on earth.

‘Our goal is to set the bar high for what SUP can achieve in a 24hr interval on the Yukon River, perhaps 200 miles. With higher volume and wind to our advantage, maybe farther. The adventure will likely begin at the North end of Lake Laberge pushing for the Ingersolle Islands(200 miles). We’re watching the snowpack closely in case a different starting point need be considered. Using the Summer Solstice we will have plenty of light and motivation throughout the push’.

Distance will be tracked by numerous GPS devices. We’ll travel non-stop taking short breaks for hydration and food. Expectations for 24hr SUP expedition are high.

Most importantly though we hope to share with the SUP community the potential rewards the Yukon River offers.

We will be watching there progress
