Putting the beach volleyball softies competing for the title of 'King and Queen of the Beach' every February firmly in their place, the 'King and Queen of the Sea' competition holds its third stage this month, including a gruelling 3km open-sea swim. Four races in total make up the event, the aforementioned 'Challenge' beginning in Leme and ending by posto (lifeguard tower) five in Copacabana, whilst the 'Sprint' is a more straightforward circuit just off the same beach. The 'Biathlon' uses the one-kilometre course but throws in a 2.5km sand race afterwards, and a new addition for 2012, seizing on the growing fad for the sport, is a hefty 12km stand up paddle (SUP) race, involving considerably more endurance than a first glimpse might suggest.
