Participants can select from any one of the seven events on offer which include a 5km beach run, 5km beach walk, kids 1km beach run and a 400m, 1km, 2km or 3km ocean swim.

The aQuellé Ocean Racing Series is currently enjoying it’s 13th season in Nelson Mandela Bay and Sunday will be the fifth round of a scheduled 11 rounds this season.

Oracle FM will broadcast live from the event which features two prize-giving ceremonies immediately after the races and includes the kids prize-giving at 10am and the final prize- giving at 10.30am, featuring fantastic lucky draws.

Over and above the R2 000 shopping voucher from Greenacres Shopping Centre, Blusmooth will be offering one of the internationally acclaimed Mk1 wetsuits up as a lucky draw this weekend. After Sunday, the Series will take a little break and will return for round six on January 14, next year. For more info visit
