Female Team in World's Longest Kayaking Race

€30 of €5,000 goal

Raised by 1 person in 25 days
We are two girls, part of the Spanish kayaking team, Aurora Figueras Palomeras and Océane Harmony Brindeau, and we decided to create this campaign as we become closer to a great challenge.

For the second time, we want to compete in the longest kayaking race in the world. It will take place in January 2019, from the 12th to the 19th, in Argentina. The race runs for 300 Kilometers split in six stages over a week. Last year, we happened to become the first female team to finish the race. Not only did we participate, but we also won every single stage of the race in Senior Female K2.

This race is the world's biggest challenge to date when it comes to kayaking. But despite our efforts, we are facing a wall of gender inequality impeding us from accessing the necessary resources to participate. Although we do compete on the same distance and with the same conditions, every available financial aids are set aside for the men.

For this reason, we are looking for funds to help us finance and equip us prior and throughout the competition, to give us a chance to bring the cup home once again. Your support would not only be of great help to us, but it would also mediatize your participation in the fight for gender equality.
 

We thank you for your consideration and look forward to your help !
Any question or message is welcome ! :)

Somos dos piragüistas integrantes de la Selección Española de Piragüismo, Aurora Figueras Palomeras y Océane Harmony Brindeau.

Por segunda vez queremos competir en la Regata más larga del mundo, tendrá lugar del 12 al 19 de enero 2019, en Argentina, cuenta con un recorrido de 300kms, en 7 días y 6 etapas. En efecto, el año pasado, en nuestra primera participación, nos proclamamos campeonas de la regata en K2 mujer senior, siendo el primer barco europeo femenino en remarlo

Esta prueba es el mayor desafío mundial de la temporada en la disciplina del piragüismo, pero por desgracia nos enfrentamos a un problema de desigualdad de género. A pesar de competir sobre la misma distancia, y en exactamente las mismas condiciones, las únicas ayudas económicas para financiarse el viaje y la regata están reservadas a los equipos masculinos. Por esta razón estamos en búsqueda de sponsors para ayudarnos y acompañarnos a lo largo de esta preparación y competición, para poder llegar a participar de nuevo, e intentar traer por segunda vez consecutiva la victoria a España.

Esperemos que nuestro proyecto les interese!

Gracias de antemano. :)
