The southafrican summer is right now in frenzy activity, most of all the year after year raising surfski passion. One of the upcoming events are the Varsity College Marine Surfski Series, 10 surfski races to be at Durban bay almost every Friday evening from January to March. Under Hansa sponsorship and having the Lifesavers Club a new building since 2010, the competition has grown quickly and this years' entries are supposed to stablish a new record.
There are two distance courses: 4 km. for younger categories (the last of the series are going to be SA School Surfski Champs) and 8 km. for the main categories, were first line paddlers like...
McGregor, Mathew Bouman or Barry Lewin are supposed to fight for the final victory. For the final results, their six best races out of ten will be taken on account.
The confirmed dates are:
January - 13, 20 and 27
February - 3, 10 and 24
March - 2, 9, 16 and 30
Good ambience is assured at the competition and after at the Lifesavers Club's bar and the first 300 paddlers will be awarded with a rash vest. The final awards giving ceremony will be on April 2nd. As an appetizer, here you have a video about last year's first reace of the series:
