Brighton & Hove Autumn Race Series – The Finale

The final race in the series happened on Sunday 24th November and conditions were great, although perhaps a little on the cold side.

SUP Race, Brighton


Light northerly winds gave some lovely flat water paddling conditions. The course started from the Lagoon beach, cruised along the coastline to New beach (near to Shoreham port arm), a short run up the sand around a flag, then a return trip to the finishing flag, totaling 7 kilometers.

After 7 weeks of racing, competition was high – everyone wanted to get the top spots.

Both fleets started together, for a mass start. In the race board fleet Charlie Grey took the lead and kept it up, followed closely by Mark Saul and Robin Williams.

In the Round Nose fleet Dan Showkum leader of the series throughout kept up his winning streak, leading the fleet throughout, on his tail was Graeme Williams and Stewart Nicholson who was putting the pressure on.
