Fancy something different this year?

If you've got a dinghy which has a PY of 980 or faster you should really check out the East Coast Piers Race (sponsored by Zhik) which is in less than two weeks time.

The race is held at Marconi Sailing Club on the River Blackwater (post code CMO 7NU)
  • Zhik are title sponsors so expect some great prizes
  • Free camping from Friday to Monday
  • Two inshore races on Saturday starting from 1pm, briefing around midday
  • Two course options (27 or 13 miles) for dinghies on Sunday
  • Fantastic band on Saturday night
  • Event sponsored by Adnams so great beer
  • GPS tracking on Sunday courtesy of GJW Direct
  • Mother boats (yachts) line the course at every mile - you can stop at any point and won't be penalised
  • Loads of support ribs along the way
There are just some of the essentials you need to know.

Let me know if you have any questions.
