Tim Rowe, Aaron Rowe, Chris Bates and Mark Creedan left Jersey Wednesday night to start their 5 hour journey down to the island of Oleron in SW France. The boys are heading off to compete in a World series event with a prize purse of $10,000. This is one of the biggest European events on the year and will attract the biggest names in Europe and the World.

The event is circled around one main race the 30KM distance race from la Plage de Soubregeon to Saint-Denis d’Oléron. The race will start at 2pm on the Friday and they will be going with the current with the added hope that the wind will also be there to  help them along. Last year the wind was against the racers for most of the race. :(


Saturday and Sunday will be more fun days with Beach sprint races in a BOP style, Relays and if there’s surf they will run a SUP surf comp.


Friday 09:18 – Update from Mark












Last night the boys filled up on pasta and got an early night. Last night there was some concern from organsiers that the race may have to be split in to two part due to the wind. This morning the call has been made to run the race in one full stretch as the wind is set to drop. The boys are waiting now for the next update for the race start time.

There is no live coverage but there maybe updates on the FB link.
