The 2015 GB Ocean Ski Series starts in just over a month’s time, with a great series of five races planned.
The 2015 Series kicks off at Looe on the 2-3 May, with two days of racing, clinics and the option to try out skis from various manufacturers. A great downwind race with the added tactical complexities of the Looe river and a lap of Looe Island can be expected. Entries are now open for Looe and details for the rest of the series races will be up soon.
Before the second race there is the Surfski Development Weekend at Bournemouth on the 16-17 May. This is a free event, with the opportunity to try out a huge variety of skis and pick up tips on paddling and wave riding. Even if you’re merely curious about skis there will be plenty of boats for all abilities available to demo.
The season continues in Dorset with the Weymouth to Lulworth event on the 6 June. This event will play host to Sean Rice, ICF Surfski World Champion, who will be running a paddling clinic as part of his www.yourpaddlelife.com world tour and competing in the event.
The series then moves on to the St Ives Paddlefest (27 June), the ever popular Icon Classic (11 July) in North Devon, and finishing back at Branksome Chine for the Bournemouth Bay race (1 August). However, this is not the end of the fun as the 12 September sees the Doubles Championship, also at Branksome Chine.
