Patricija, rest in peace!


It is with great sorrow that we inform you of the passing of our beloved friend and co-worker Patricija Štrukelj (1965-2015).

She has been a dedicated canoeing worker. She was an organiser of canoeing events and above all dedicated and tireless judge.

As international judge she officiated at numerous European and World Championships and World Cup races. She was a judge of unbending will, determination and impartiality which are the qualities of very few.

But she was also an organiser of canoeing events. In the past years we cannot find a single competition on the Soča River where Patricija did not take part in the organisation. Nothing was impossible for her, even in the most complicated conditions she was able to solve the most difficult tasks. Patricija was a great motivator who found the right word for everyone at the right time. Because of these virtues she was invaluable to us. And the memory of her unforgettable.

Patricija, THANK YOU! Rest in peace!

We would like to express our sincere condolences to her family and many friends.
