Went on an afternoon paddle with my fellow clubmate Heinz on the Danube today. Heinz finished the Yukon River Quest 07 on 11th position in the Single Kayak Male class (The Austrian)! We did a total of 28 k`s in 3,5 hours, i ended up with a bunch of blisters, for Heinz, it was easy going all the way. He is a superstrong paddler and great guy! By the way: i left the speedo at home! Andreas: than you for explaining the euro swimming custom the the guys! Dave: thank you for your support, great photo, Red Nose Day, i assume? The club float. Going upriver. Near the turning point. Heinz Rodinger aka "The Austrian" Ottensheim Castle Near the car ferry. Powered only by the river current! The "Schönbrunn" an allmost 100 years old paddlewheeler, but still the fastest cruise ship on the river! they fire up the steam engine with Diesel now, but otherwise still in its original condition! Makes a nasty wake! Back at the float.
