With the deadline for entry to the Red Bull Tide Ride imminent, entries are now over 100 in the four competing classes - 49er, International 14, RS800 and B14.

This unique event, sponsored by Red Bull at Hayling Island SC for the second year, brings the excitement of high speed skiff racing to a location that allows the action to take place within easy viewing distance from the club.

Watching or racing the Red Bull Tide Ride will be the dinghy event of the year as top crews race for £2,400.00 in prize money over two days of 'crash & burn' style racing over tight, gated, windward/leeward courses.

Action starts on Friday 4, October, with racing for the 49ers including a Speed Trial.

Saturday, 5 October, all four classes will sail in a Qualification Series of seeded flights with all races to count, the bottom ranked crews being eliminated.

Sunday, 6 October, sees the Elimination Series of races leading to the Grand Final for each class.

Racing starts at 1030 each day and there will be a competitors BBQ on Friday and a competitors dinner and party on Saturday.

Contact the HISC Office on 023 9246 3768 for entry now.
