The 31st East Coast Piers Race sponsored by Zhik is being held over the weekend of the 7th and 8th July at Marconi Sailing Club. This year it's part of the Allen Endurance Series.

The East Coast Piers Race is a long distance sailing event which goes from inside the River Blackwater, up to Walton and back as the full course. It's open to Fast Dinghies and Catamarans. There are various course options on Sunday based on the speed of your boat.

There are yachts (mother boats) which line the course and are there to help - there are also a number of ribs patrolling sectors helping you if needed. The course is very easy to follow.

More information on the race website -

2 inshore races starting at around 1pm with a briefing at midday

Saturday evening social with a fantastic band and plenty of beer from our new sponsors The Mighty Oak Brewery.

Three race options:
- Full East Coast Piers Race (48 miles) for catamarans
