[RESULTS] Eric Terrien Wins The Paris Crossing As 200 Paddlers Hit The Seine



Eric Terrien has taken out today’s Nautic SUP Paris Crossing, capping off another year of domination in Europe. Gaetan Sene claimed second place in the main event, the Elite Distance Race (on his namesake the River Seine, no less), with Yoann Cornelis claiming third in the Distance and 2nd overall. Meanwhile Faustine Merret, Manca Notar and Sonni Hönschied dominated the women’s division.

Conditions were close to freezing, with the temperature hovering around 4°C (39°F) as the paddlers took to the water just after sunrise. There were plenty of wetsuits, booties, gloves and beanies on show. The 12km course stretched up and down the famous river, with competitors gliding under historic bridges and even going past the Eiffel Tower at one point. Over 200 paddlers braved the cold for what must have been one of the largest ever SUP races in Europe.

The Distance Race was only half of the show though; the whole event is part of a massive boat show happening in Paris, so in the afternoon the paddlers headed indoors for some short course sprints in the pool. Results were combined to crown the overall champ.

Check out the early race results below then check back soon for full results and pics of the action.
