Registered participants get a start number which includes a collective accident insurance, access to the changing tent and to take part in all the contests and to win valuable prizes from the organizers and partners of Fontanka SUP festival.
This year the organisers have introduced a number of compulsory safety restrictions.
It is not allowed to row on the route without a leash! A leash is a black safety rope which is attached to the leg. It prevents the board from floating away in case of a fall into the water.
We also strongly recommend all carnival participants to wear a lifejacket and follow the water safety rules.
Everyone over 18 years old can take part in the festival. Children under 14 years old are not allowed on the water. Young people aged 14-18 are only allowed to participate when accompanied by parents.
Participation in kayaks or makeshift swimming apparatus is prohibited. On the day of the Fontanka SUP festival, it is ONLY possible to sail in the carnival column on a stand up paddle board. We have come to this decision based on our past experience and guided by safety principles.
