Pier2Pier Race, Lancing Kite Beach, Saturday, 26. October 2019

Lancing Kitesurfing Club is pleased to present the DUOTONE PIER 2 PIER RACE
On Saturday 26th October 2019  Lancing Kitesurfing Club will be holding the first ever Pier2Pier Race - the biggest kitesurfing downwind race of its kind in the UK and one of only a few events of its kind in the world.  Racing through the start line at Worthing Pier, 150 kiters will race more than 21 miles, taking in intermediate downwind buoys at Lancing, Shoreham and Hove before crossing the finish line at the iconic Palace Pier in Brighton.
 
EVENT DETAILS
We will race in wind directions from S through SW to W (directions outside this make the event logistics unmanageable).
12-16 knots – foilers, lightwind TT’s and large kites only
17-25 knots – the race is on, race on what you want!
26-35 knots– freeride, no racing

On the day of the race you MUST register at Lancing beach green.  We will put you on coaches up to Goring and get you on the water for the mass rolling starts. There is a specific course to take in which is covered in the race info pack which will be posted out along with your race jersey prior to the event. Finishing at Brighton we will return your pre-packed dry bag/kit, warm you up with a hot drink and snack before putting you on coaches back to Lancing.

THE RACE CATERGORIES;
- OPEN/PRO MEN       - OPEN/PRO WOMEN
- TT/SURF MEN           - TT/SURF WOMEN
- JUNIORS                    - TEAM OF 3 (ANY board)
We will aim to give everyone a finish position and where possible a finish time. We will also give all teams a finishing position.

PARTY
We are also holding a prize giving and after party at Sussex Yacht club, with food, dancing and a wild party all included!
