2024 - Sussex Classic weekend 

What's New for 2024

Lancing Parish Council  have continued to provide amazing support for this event, and so a massive thank you to them!  

This is an SLSGB Event Weekend

In order to provide safety cover and insurance for this event it is held under the governance of an SLSGB event.  

Our safety crews travel from across the country to provide us with amazing support to run this race.  

Weekend Now Opens up a some new opportunities 

With safety cover for the whole weekend, this now gives us to the opportunity to select a weather window and more importantly a potential plan B for the race weekend.

It will be our intention to run the races as per the draft race timings shown, but this year we have the opportunity to change the race day on the run up to the race weekend.  Hopefully this will increase the probability of ensuring we have a race at some point on this weekend. 

(To be clear though the intention is we will only change the race timings if it is clear we can't accommodate the race on the Saturday as planned) 

The same safety conditions will apply as per last year, which is generally that if the wind predictions are greater than 20knots in any southerly direction, and as always final race decisions will be made by the Water Safety Officer and we /he may cancel the race for any reason.  

Race Fee's For 2024

Surfski Race Fee's - As before all participants must be a paid up member of SLSGB in order for you to race. This allows us to insure and run the event. I remind you that it is your responsibility to make sure this is valid, and will only be checked once this year on 5 days prior to the event.  If you do not have this you will not be allowed to start the race and there will be no refund.

Single Ski Entry Fee (includes free beach green parking with race ticket) : £35

Double Ski Entry Fee : £55 per boat

  • GPS tracking (mandatory) £6.50 per boat. (Mandatory with every entry)

  • Bank Fee's charged at 4% of transaction.

2024 will be no different and any monies raised above covering the cost's of the event will all be put back into the BSLSC and RNLI.
