7th Annual Bråviken Cold Feet Paddle Race 2021
Bråviken Cold Feet Paddle Race is on the last Saturday of November every year. This year, the wind speeds were between 9 and 11 knots and gusts were between 19 and 23 knots with air temperatures between 3 and 6 degrees Celsius. I was photographing and filming in the safety boat with the race director, Erik Wallgren, while he skippered us through swells and frigid glacial chop. The waters of Bråviken feed into the Black Sea making it a busy passage for ships carrying cargo in and out of the fjard. The field of athletes was sparse this year; typical with high winds and gnarly conditions. I admire the athletes who toughed it out. In Sweden, the few who choose to face the elements that most avoid are usually big hearted as well as courageous.
