The Danube 2860 kayak tour is almost in the finish

2015. június 4.

Charity kayak tour, started last year in June: the paddling (combined with sekler cake baking) from the Black Forest to the Black Sea is slowly coming to the end. The Vitéz Kürtős Team sat back into the kayak on the 23rd of May to take the last 900 kilometers.

The Vitéz Kürtős Team dreamed very big last year. They took it into their heads to paddle down 2,860 kilometers on the Danube, however the never ever paddled before. After one month preparation they started the tour off and they completed the daily 70-80 kilometers paddling very well. Meanwhile the paddling, they also took photos and prepared video content, which were exhibited on the 2nd Sekler Cake Festival. The secondary objective of the tour also worked out well. It was the introduction of the sekler cake to the places, where it was not know by the locals before.



Készül a "Dunakalács"

It was a nice little adventure, but because of the lack of time we had to cancel it twice last year: once after arriving in Budapest, and once after the Budapest - Iron Gate (Romania) distance. Indeed, such an action requires at least 3-4 people from the team, but it was impossible because of a lot of work. If they would have wanted to make it without breaks, it would take at least 1,5 months. Finally they gave it up on the 8th of August last year. Since the organization was already in full swing for the 2nd Sekler Cake Festival, so we decided to finish the tour for the previous year and to continue it at the of May – beginning of June.

They sat back into the kayak on the 23rd of May, exactly where they finished last year: at the Iron Gate in Romania, at the 1960 kilometer stone. Two weeks kayaking is left to reach the Danube Delta and then they will paddle to the Black Sea. Exciting days are already behind them and also coming on their way. Their reports of the tour could be found here: http://www.vitezkurtosteam.hu

The kayak trip was also a charity movement: we collected money for a life-saving defibrillator to a small town at the Danube Delta, but since then a year passed by and the management of the village could not be reconciled about the need for the machine. So the team decided to see it right there and then it turns out if they still need the help. The team decided to bake sekler cakes to the 100 children in the town’s school, not to leave the humanitarian action from the tour. If everything goes well it will be on the 3rd of June, when the team paddles to the C.A. Rosetti village on the east side of the Danube, to Letea village.

Thank you to those who followed and cheered along the course of the tour! Please continue it for a few days and a successful and challenging performance can belong to the Vitéz Kürtős Team.

Curious about what will be our great idea next time??? We are sure that will be another exciting tour ... More Details coming soon!
