“Very happy to race with confidence and have a strong race! I felt good early and took a gamble to paddle the opposite way of the field when a boat went through. From there I focused on each stroke and kept a solid average. Was a hot flat grind with so many of the worlds best and it was nice to do what I have done in previous years for the first time this season.” ~ Michael Booth
“I am so happy to win here in Corfu! It was a really challenging race with the heat and dead flat conditions, but my blood sugar was amazing today and I was feeling strong. I got a gap early and was able to hold it for the entire race. Couldn’t be happier with a win in Greece, especially after the epic week we’ve been having!” ~ Fiona Wylde
“I got a good feeling to do well for this race but today I made it 3rd place and 1st European!! It was a long hot battle!! Congratulations to this beast Michael Booth for his win!! Next stop, Agios Nikolaos on SUP” ~ Leonard Nika
