The 11th edition of the 2022 Namur SUP Race, the oldest SUP Race in Belgium and the longest-running SUP event of the Eurotour, was a great success with the highest participation to date. The sun was shining at The Flow by Charlie’s Club, the watersports center at the heart of the event and the expected rain held off.
