Allen Endurance Series

 

UK performance sailing hardware manufacturer Allen Brothers has announced the creation of a new sailing series designed to test crews and equipment in extreme contests of skill and endurance. The new Series combines established events into a format which Allen Brothers believes will increase participation and competition, enhancing the endurance element of small boat racing in the UK.

The Allen Endurance Series combines the East Coast Piers Race, the Round Sheppey Race and the Solent Towers Race into a series with overall winner(s), who will receive an Allen Voucher worth £100 (retail including VAT). The overall Series prize fund will comprise:
 
·         First Prize Allen voucher worth £500 (retail including VAT)
·         Second Prize Allen voucher worth £200 (retail including VAT)
·         Third Prize Allen voucher worth £100 (retail including VAT)
 
This makes a total prize fund, including the individual event awards, of £1,000.
 
By the nature of Endurance racing, the new series is most likely to include Skiffs, Foilers and Fast Catamarans. The ECPR, for example, is only open to dinghies with a high performance rating. Most boats will be trapezing classes. Once again, the Series is intended to appeal to sailors looking for recognition for "extreme" sensations. You can register interest on-line for the series with SailRacer and combine entries for the qualifying events to save money.
