One day in summer '98 Chuck Vitek, Atlanta, USA, with his wife and little daughter, had come to Losevo rapids in Karelia, near St.Petersburg to spend a week together with the sun and the water.

Chuck's family and guide team at the breakfast...    Kayaks prepared,    rescuers are ready as well.

The rapids attract each genuine kayaker and Chuck starts to battle.

A hard struggle but Chuck, a real white water kayaker, wins.

And now one can relax a little.
