Nautical paddle: 12th edition
The Nautic Paddle, the biggest and most original paddle race in the world, will take place on Sunday, December 4, 2022 on the Seine.
The Innovation Competition, to promote nautical innovations
The grand finale will take place on Saturday December 10, 2022 at the Paris Boat Show.
The Federation of Nautical Industries (FIN) launched in April the 6th edition of the competition which aims to highlight new nautical products and services intended to be placed on the national and international market. Since 2017, the FIN has been organizing this national competition at the Paris Boat Show.
“With its 1,000 professionals and 200,000 visitors, the Nautic is the reference that focuses all attention on making today's innovation the practice of tomorrow. Unique in its kind, this competition was for many of the winners, the opportunity to write the first lines of great entrepreneurial stories” underlines Alain Pichavant, Commissioner General of the Paris Boat Show.
Builders, engine manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, services, marinas, boardsports, tourism… regardless of the size of the company, its age, the first criterion for competing is conditional on an aquatic activity (sea, lake or river…). Aware of the need to combine development of practices and preservation of the natural environment, the FIN also wanted any project presented to be able to contribute concretely to the ecological transition while making boating accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of age or practitioner's experience.
Nautic scene: nautical events at the heart of the Show
The Nautic Stage, a presentation and discussion space can accommodate up to 200 people.
It is the largest French nautical scene devoted to offshore racing, nautical events or conferences/debates.
