Taking inspiration from the amazing Sussex coastline, Lancing kitesurfing club aim to establish & run the Pier2Pier Race – the biggest kite downwind race of its kind in the UK
On Saturday 26th October 2019 the inaugural event will run with world class athletes on the same tack as club and local riders!
Kite and windsurfers will race between the iconic Worthing Pier and renowned Palace Pier in Brighton, racers will cover approximately 21 miles, taking in intermediate downwind buoys at Lancing, Shoreham and Hove.
A spectacle, a race and a challenge like no other!
For spectators and the general public, exhilarating vantage points on both Piers will make for extra special viewing plus close-up racing at Lancing (the Perch), Shoreham (Ferry Road) and Hove (Lagoon) as riders round race buoys just ten metres from the shore. Make sure you get outdoors to our wonderful shoreline and witness this event for yourselves!
On the day riders will register at Lancing and we wil take care of all your transport to get you to Goring for the mass rolling start through the start line at Worthing Pier. Racers will then finish at the Yellow Wave on Maderia Drive for a quick drink and snack before transport back up to Lanicng. Of course, there will be massive party and prize giving in the evening!
