FNB Mazars Durban Downwind (2014 SA S1 & S2 Champs) entries open!

With just 5 weeks to go until the first ever FNB Mazars Durban Downwind surfski race, which in 2014 will double as the South African Surfski Championships, we are open for entries!

Over the last few years the SA Surfski Champs’ title winners have come from all over South Africa, showing the great depth and level of competition amongst our top surfski paddlers throughout the country and, once again, we’re looking forward to another great two days of racing this year!

We are excited to announce that this year’s SA Surfski Champs will be held in KZN at the first ever edition of the FNB Mazars Durban Downwind. The event, which will become an annual event, will also be where the both 2014 KZN and Gauteng Surfski Champs will be decided so there is plenty of added incentive to get your entry in NOW!

Despite being new to the racing calendar itself, the Durban Downwind is proud to welcome a new sponsor to the sport of surfski in FNB whilst welcoming back 2013 SA Champs title sponsor, Mazars, who are back to support the paddlers once again!

The weekend’s surfski action will consist of two days of downwind race on the 21 & 22 June with a 26km course between Marine SLC and either La Mercy or Amanzimtoti, depending on the wind, to be setup. The singles (S1) title race will take place on Saturday and the doubles (S2) on Sunday.

Entries for the event can be submitted here!

Be sure to check out the series poster for all the event’s info or else head on over to the race’s brand new website which will go live in the next few days. In the meantime check out our Facebook page.
