Island Races - Round the Island Stand Up Paddleboard Endurance Race

03 Sep 17

 

Island Races is held on Mersea Island. The Island is situated on the Blackwater Estuary on the East Coast of England in Essex, approximately 8 miles from the nearest town Colchester and 60 miles from London. Mersea is a beautiful Island surrounded by stunning beaches, coastal paths, cliffs and marshland spoiled with wildlife. East Mersea boasts the Cudmore Grove Country Park that teems with wildlife, in particular migrating birds. It is also famous for its eroding cliffs that have been known to expose both bear and mammoth fossils. West Mersea is the bigger of the two villages and is also the hub of the sailing and fishing communities. There are creeks littered with moored yachts and fishing boats and the surrounding marshland is protected for its populations of birds and occasional seals. 

 

The Round the Island Stand Up Paddleboard Endurance Race (RTI-SUP) will see the competitors village and start/finish line based at Cudmore Grove Country park. They will then circumnavigate the island as fast as possible taking in the beautiful island coastline.

 

The chosen charity for this event is Water Aid, Surfers Against Sewage, Mersea Island Festival Trust.
