STEP #5 : take the plunge!

Everyone gets their paddle and then, all in the water! Luckily, it’s really good, even at 8am …

STEP #6 : Try to synchronize

When the wind rises, kayaks and paddles drift… Not easy to realize two “5” at the same time! We let you judge in pictures …

The easiest way is to hold on to the buoy of the harbor to not drift too far! The 1st 5 takes shape …

STEP #7 : – clic – Capture the moment

Jory takes the picture from the sky! Because from the beach or the sea, we have more the impression of doing a “93” or “24” rather than something that is close to a “55” …
