4 years ago, I was there, in a plastic kayak, scared of being thrown into the cold water after a colleague of mine spent minutes to return into his boat. I was playing Kayak Polo, but most of us were not so skilled at that. It was a team building and someone decided to go for something a bit more unconventional. Which was fun for some of us, ok for most and very disturbing for the 65 years old guy, having problems to breath in the freezing water.
Last weekend, we attended one stage of the Danish Championship of Kayak Polo. It was totally unexpected, as we were just walking by the Hellerup area and heard some noises that sound like a sporting event. The weather was so typically Danish: in about three hours, we got some nice sun, almost good for sunbathing but also cold luring rain that made the sportsmen not care too much if they are inside or outside of the water. Kayak polo, is one of the competitive disciplines of canoeing, known simply as “polo” by its aficionados.
