Crossing Lake of Lucerne (Luzerner Seeüberquerung)

For the third time, the annual crossing of the Lake of Lucerne takes place on Sunday, August 18. For details, please check here:
Sorry, the page is in German, so for those of you that are not so familiar with German here in a nutshell:
- The route goes from Strandbad Lido (close to the museum of transportation) to the Strandbad Tribschen.
- There are 2 categories you can choose, swimming and SUP (Stand Up Paddling)
- The swimming distance is 1.1 km, and the SUP-distance is 2.5 km. You have to make the distance in max. 45 min because then the cruise ships will run again in the area.
- For SUP, you can rent a board, please announce this when you sign in.
- Participation fee for adults is CHF 30. That includes: a one-day vbl bus ticket Lucerne, entrance fee to both Lidos, rescue service, a bathing cap, lunch in Tribschen, transportation service for your belongings from Lido to Tribschen, and you can check out stuff in Tribschen during the "Aquaplausch".
- Please sign in individually (go to "Anmeldung" on the webpage). It's limited to max. 400 swimmer and 100 SUP.

So we will meet at the Strandbad Lido, and when we have made it to the other side of the Lake, we can hang out in the Strandbad Tribschen as long as we want!

I participated the last 2 times, it was real fun and challenging (for me :-) and the weather and water were always perfect, not to speak about the Swiss-organization!

Note that this is not a race and open to anyone who can make it in the given timeframe. No problem, as we have 2 months time left to get ready for this event ;-)

Looking forward to see you there!

    Hi All!
    My plans just have changed:
    Fortunately, my girlfriend is going to visit me that weekend! :-) Unfortunately, we will be out of town, and hence I will not be able to attend the event I set up :-(
    However, the good news is that Derek jumps in to keep the group together. His cell: 0798930593. Thanks a lot, Derek!

    I propose that the group meets at the first beachvolleyball-field inside the Lido. It's easy to find: When you have entered the Lido, just make a right and you run into it.

    Sorry again, and I hope you all enjoy the day with swimming, sun & fun!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
