BlueBro is the project promoted by Albert Bosch, Iván Galofré, Laura Rodríguez and Berto Robles, four athletes willing to undertake an adventure such as traveling 930 kilometers by kayak to cross the Ebro River from beginning to end.
At RocRoi we are very proud to be part of this great challenge, contributing our bit by handing over all the material and equipment to the participants. The kayaks that these four adventurers will have are the Mezzo PRO model. A compact enclosed kayak, ideal for a challenge with so many technical demands combined. With its 3.6m in length, it allows great maneuverability in the river and lightness to carry out the numerous portages, while maintaining the course well and allowing agile and efficient navigability.
The main objective of the BlueBro project is to make visible and raise awareness of issues such as sustainability and the environment from the resource “WATER”; using adventure as a transversal medium to be able to disseminate in a pleasant, exciting and not very technical way to reach the maximum number of people.
One of the highlights of this challenge is that Laura Rodríguez will become the first woman to kayak the Ebro river integral. This fact will help to give visibility to women’s sport, in this case the women’s kayak modality.
The adventure begins this next Thursday, August 20, when the four participants will move towards the beginning of the route in Fontibre, where they will begin a small section out of the water. On Saturday August 22nd, the descent in kayak will begin on the Ebro river. In total, the descent will last three weeks, until reaching the end of the route: the mouth of the Ebro.
