Hout Bay Tuesday Surfski Series 2013-2014

Summer in Cape Town offers a number of weekly surfski time-trials. I must admit as a novice I find the cold, bumpy waters of the Hout Bay Tuesday Series far less inviting than the warm sheltered Fish Hoek Bay! The friendly paddlers and the views of Chapman’s Peak and The Sentinal more than make up for it!

Races are held every Tuesday evening in Hout Bay, where you have a choice of completing the long course (+-10km) or short course (+-5km). Meet on Hout Bay Beach in front of the yacht club on the harbour-side of the beach [-34.04635, 18.35048].

Each week paddlers line the shore to take each other on, challenging the series and category leaders. A different long and short course is set each week, using the various marks in the bay and taking into account weather conditions on the day.
