The Mission of the Swedish League of Vikings is to provide an experience for folks to enjoy the Portland waterway in the company of other fun-loving people.
Following the Scandinavian tradition of good-natured athleticism and community involvement, it is the hope that our team may continue to pursue activities in the 'off-season' that could include civic-minded acts of service or simply social gathering. Our goal in the races and the training will be to enjoy the experience while mastering solid watercraft skills and healthy paddling technique.
Winning would be cool, too.
Membership in one of the Leagues' Swedish Societies is not a requirement.
Paddlers are encouraged to attend at least two practices per week.
