Today’s stage was one of the longest of the Plyniemy Polsko Rajd and the final on the water. Teams and the K38 Poland safety group departed south from Szczecin.

Szczecin is a city on the Oder River in northwest Poland. It’s known for its 19th-century Wały Chrobrego, or Chobry Embankment, and the renovated Pomeranian Dukes’ Castle, now a cultural center. The vast St. James Cathedral has a 14th-century triptych, stained-glass windows and a tower with city views. Nearby is the Gothic Old Town Hall, hosting The National Museum’s exhibitions on Szczecin’s history and culture.

Płyniemy Polsko Coffee Break Before Launching


Their final destination was Wroclaw on May 4, 2018.

This stage of the Rally had a lot of turns and bends from the river. By land it is a 5 hour drive covering 378 km. Sometimes the Rally is faster on water!

Wrocław is a city on the Oder River in western Poland. It’s known for its Market Square, lined with elegant townhouses and featuring a modern fountain. Also on the square is the Gothic Old Town Hall, with its large astronomical clock. Nearby is the Panorama of Racławice, a painting depicting the 1794 battle for independence.

K38 Poland Provides Water Safety During the Rally


There were a few navigational challenges due to splits in the river, several team riders had to correct their heading which cost them some fuel and time. That is part of the challenge of fatigue and time underway.
The water was very calm and the weather was favorable during this final stage of the rally.

Przepłyneliśmy Polskę.
Jakub Friedenberger i Mateusz Orzoł represented K38 Poland both switching positions from Rescue Water Craft operator to vehicle chase driver.

Było to możliwe dzięki wsparciu LG Polska oraz SANTI Diving. Jesteśmy wdzięczni.
It was possible with the support of LG Polska and SANTI Diving. We are grateful.

Plyniemy Polsko Facebook

Tomorrow is the closing ceremonies of the Plyniemy Polsko in Rybnik, Poland. It has been a wonderful experience for not only the charities involved but the race teams and the safety provided by K38 Poland.

This has been an outstanding experience for K38 Poland and the participants. These type of on-water adventures have so many issues to surmount. The planning stages are significant. The mobility of Personal Water Craft and support vehicles is a big challenge as the PWC's often arrive ahead of the vehicles.

If a PWC goes down in a remote area, the teams face a puzzle to connect and make necessary repairs to stay in the Rally. Its man, machine and land and water with the elements.

The 2018 Plyniemy Polsko created memories for everyone involved and raised awareness for their charities.
The next stop is the Closing ceremonies in Rybnik, everyone is on the road heading to the location, see you there!

Heroes of the 2018 Plyniemy Polsko


Sebastian and Ola are the heroes of the Płyniemy Polsko Rally.

The Plyniemy Polsko is patterned off the famous road race the Paris to Dakar. Only the Rally in Poland runs up the famous Vistula River, to the Baltic Sea and back down to the center of the nation on Personal Water Craft.

Płyniemy Polsko


Ten teams have joined to Rally to raise funds and awareness for children’s charitable causes for the Special Olympics, cerebral palsy and Autism.

On April 29th., Ola and Sebastian who represent the mascots of the charity focus rode a BRP Sea Doo Spark northward on the Vistual River at the starting point in Krakow.

They drove onward through Warsaw, Wcloclawek Gydnia and today the Rally starts in Szczecin on the Oder River. The Teams will continue until the end point in Rybink.

Heroes of the Rally


Although the Rally is also a race as well as a charity event, for Sebastian and Ola it is about personal dreams and achievement.

The Rally will be working to provide the funds for special diving equipment for people who are mentally and physically challenged to bring them opportunities to explore and become a reality of their own design.

They are fantastic representatives of the Special Olympics - Olimpiady Specjalne Śląskie

Plyniemy Polsko

The Plyniemy Polsko is a benefit Charity Rally that navigates through Poland from the Rivers to the Baltic Sea, having Connected Riders is a big part of the safety of the event.

The Plyniemy Polsko is fielded by ten teams of Personal Water Craft operators who are raising awareness for children’s charitable organizations.

The event is a week-long challenge with various stops at historical ports and waterfronts. This is an incredible project undertaken by the teams and a host of venerable sponsors.

Connected Boat is a significant part of the assurance of safety for this event.
Connected Boat

Connected Boat


Gdynia to Darlowo
Each day is considered a Stage. Each day that passes fatigue, water and weather conditions and vessel fatigue can occur. Whenever long distance adventures are undertaken safety is the cornerstone of the success for the entrants and the image of the event.
The organizers spent countless hours preparing and ensuring that each team would be well prepared for the arduous journey.
Connected Boat is a GPS tracking device that is stored onboard the craft and the land chase vehicles. The GPS signal can be viewed in real time at a special landing page for the Rally.

Another great aspect of Connected Boat is that it gives viewers an update on the battery life along with the speed and location, the vessel direction is also given. Alerts can also be notified regarding the status of the vessel itself. It has a great feature for connectivity through social media.

Contestant Jacek Biskupek was running a great pace on his Sea Doo Spark and he had a technical issue with the craft, so he pulled up on the beach in Choczewo.

K38 Poland’s Yamaha Rescue Water Craft was pulling up the rear and stopped to check on Jacek.

You can see from the Connected Boat event page the tracklines, and the actual time of the stop and precise location. Jacek decided to wait for his support vehicle to arrive so he could make the necessary repairs and K38 Poland finished the final leg by water.

While all the Rally riders made it safe to port in Darwolo, Jacek had help on the way. It was challenging to get to Jacek’s remote location as there were no waterfront road access and the sand was restrictive.

His support vehicle made several attempts to get closer to his location on the beach. What is great about Connected Boat is that we could watch anywhere in the world to see the locations of the chase vehicles and the Personal Water Craft.

Connected Boat has a great profile page for each craft or vehicle. The APP also tracks the speed and exact GPS location in a timely fashion and records a trackline that is easy to read.

His support vehicle actually landed and they sorted everything out with plenty of daylight left to get back to the group and get some rest for the next leg of the Rally.

Beach Assist


Fortunately for Jacek he is pretty handy with repairs and tore into the pump on the beach. A local tractor helped to move the Spark and everything was sorted.

The best part of this experience is that I am in America and I was able to watch on the Connected Boat event page and I could see how fast they were working out solutions from the time the Spark went down, to the time Jacek and his teammate made it back to the hotel for the night!

Our company K38 is a close group of water safety professionals. We are represented around the world and we work on a variety of waterways.

Safety is our business. As the founder of K38, its great to have the Connected Boat connection because I can track K38 Poland’s progress and the event safety from my laptop computer thousands of miles away. It’s a great evaluation tool for me to be able to track the capability of our team.

k38 Poland checks on Jacek on the beach

Darlowo to Kolobrzeg to Szczecin

The Rally participants get an early start out of Darowlo. Tomasz Kasprzak has been a front runner on the Rally since the first stage. Two of the chase vehicles moved ahead to the final stop in Szczecin because its often faster to travel by water than land.

Unfortunatley half way to Kolobrzeg Tomasz landed on the beach in Mielno. I of course am sitting in California watching this on Connected Boat. The overlay of Google maps gives great updates on roads and locations so I can easily track on Connected Boat the exact town or city they are in.

What I can tell from my laptop at this time is that Tomasz has his Personal Water Craft out of the water and he has landed in small town where he has access to support.

Great things happen when you stay connected! Safety is not a word, it is an action and an investment. We are thankful for devices that track our safety, help us find people when things go wrong and bring us home safe.

K38 Poland Update: The first episode of the rally is now behind us.

One word: Humility.

This is the word that comes to mind about today. It was a long and difficult stage.

Pierwszy odcinek za nami.
Pokora. To jest to słowo, które przychodzi mi na myśl o dzisiejszym, długim i trudnym etapie. Wisła uczy, Wisła nie wybacza błędów, Wisła wymaga. Zmęczeni ale zadowoleni przygotowujemy się do jutrzejszej trasy do Włocławka.

Wisła teaches, wisła does not forgive mistakes, wisła requires. Tired but happy we are preparing for tomorrow's route to Popieluszko during the first stage of the PLYNIEMY POLSKO.
