Popular aQuellé Ocean Racing Series returns to Hobie Beach next weekend

AFRICA’S largest family beach event, the aQuellé Ocean Racing Series, returns to Hobie Beach next Sunday for season 13 with registrations and premier membership specials now open.

The series, which takes place on mostly alternate Sunday mornings throughout the whole of summer, offers something for the whole family with three beach events and four swim events taking place each race morning.

The events will start at 9am and wrap up with a kids prize-giving at 10am and an adult prize-giving at 10:20am.

For those that prefer staying dry, a 5km beach run or 5km beach walk will be available and those between the ages of one and 12 can partake in the kids 1km beach run/walk.

For the swimmers, the series offers a 400m, 1km, 2km and 3km ocean swim.

With more than R20 000 in fantastic lucky draw prizes, each race morning is sure to keep families at the beach longer.

The feature lucky draw prize each race day this season is a R1 500 Greenacres shopping voucher, while for the kids 1km beach run/walk prize-giving, there will be a R500 Greenacres shopping voucher up for grabs.

Greenacres Shopping Centre have also teamed up with Caltex Eastern Cape to support the Masakhane Future Stars programme, which ensures that up to 100 disadvantaged children are given the opportunity to take part in events like the Ocean Racing Series.

Online registration is encouraged with a registration meet-and-greet func-tion taking place at News Café on Saturday October 7, between 4pm and 6pm.

Series wetsuit partner Blu Smooth will have one of their top-of-the-range wetsuits as a lucky draw prize on the evening.
