Want to enjoy an excellent weekend of partying and sailing for charity? You've got until Wednesday to enter. Come and join us on the east coast for this classic event this July 8th and 9th. The East Coast Piers Race is now in its 34th year and we have an action packed weekend planned for you.

The weekend starts on Friday when the FREE on-site camping opens up (along with the bar) so you can set up base and get your boat sorted ahead of Saturday's races, where the line up is for an "inshore" series with multiple races to warm everyone up for Sunday's long distance races.

Sunday begins with our unique fleet wake up call to get you revved up for a day on the water, with the 48 mile 3 Piers Race for the fast cats and the 27 mile Colne Point Race for the slower / single handed cats and fast dinghies with a py up to 980.

Event features:

  • Mother boats (yachts) at along the course to help if needed - this is on top of our RIB support fleet
  • FREE fleet tracking from Sail Racer for spectators and safety
  • FREE on site camping Friday to Monday
  • Saturday BBQ included in entry
  • Cheap beer with all proceeds of sale going to charity thanks to local brewery Mighty Oak Brewing Company
  • Festival atmosphere with Saturday night DJ
  • Raffle prizes from our generous sponsors
  • A warm fuzzy feeling of partying and sailing for charity
  • Part of the Allen Endurance Series
The weekend raises essential funds for local charites The Cirdan Sailing Trust and Essex Air Ambulance.
