With Sedgefield being surrounded by pristine waterways, spectacular lagoon and dune scenery, it is without a doubt a world class playground for water sports enthusiasts young and old. How exciting it is then that the Slow Festival (14-16 April) will incorporate the ‘Pili Pili SlowFest Fun SUP’ for the second year running, on Friday 14th April as part of its programme of events over the Easter weekend.
PILI PILI SLOWFEST SUP RACE
Pili Pili owner and SUP event organiser, Neels Swanepoel, said “SUP’ing is the closest you’ll ever get to walking on water! This is a race that promises to be great fun for anyone with a SUP. And for those who don’t have one, we have specially sourced a small fleet of SUP boards that you can hire directly from us.”
As this is a fun race, it’s an ideal opportunity to bring the entire family and come and try this ever-growing sport. One can register anytime from now through to 11am on Friday 14th April and the event will start either from the Fish Eagle Green on the Island OR the slipway on Kingfisher at 2pm. “The starting point is dependent on the wind direction as we’d like all SUP’ers to paddle downwind’ said Neels. “We will make the final call as to the starting point by 11am on the Friday so participants will need to keep an eye on the Slow Festival facebook page for the decision. Families, friends, supporters and spectators are all welcome!”
Don’t miss out on some great fun and an opportunity to see Sedgefield from a new angle. Great prizes up for grabs! The entry is R250pp and includes a T-shirt and boat support. Contact Pili Pili on 044 343 3087 or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
