East Coast Piers Race

Open to Fast Dinghies, Small Open Keelboats and Catamarans, the East Coast Piers Race is a major charity event raising funds to support “The Cirdan Trust” to further support their important work with socially or physically disadvantaged children. The race is based at Marconi Sailing Club on the River Blackwater in Essex and goes all the way up the East Coast to Walton and back again.

There are two course options available, the Colne Point Race which is 27 miles long open to boats 1050PY and below and then the full ECPR which is 48 miles long open to fast catamarans only.

The course is easy to follow with yachts anchored every mile of the course as motherships, we also have support RIBS to keep an eye on you – all on top of GPS tracking.

FREE camping is available on site from Friday through to Monday and there is evening entertainment and a meal on Saturday night included in your entry.

The event is run from Marconi Sailing Club in Essex, post code CM0 7NU.
