About the Event
Summer racing is back at Bray Lake Watersports, with five individual races making up the overall Summer Series for 2022.
Details are taken from the Bray Lake SUP Racing | Haywood Sports website.
Who can enter the races?
The Summer Series races are open to all. Each race is a stand-alone event, so you can enter just one or all five races to complete the series.
How are paddlers categorised?
The Bray Lake Watersports racing uses a Division classification system to categorise competitors. Your Race Division will be used throughout the series.
Why the Division System
Each Division is categorised by Time and therefore speed, meaning you will compete with other paddlers of similar ability throughout the series. This system is also used in the wider UK SUP Racing scene.
What are the race divisions?
Your time over 2km is used to align to the below Divisions.
Division 1 – 13:29 and under
Division 2 – 13:30 – 14:59
Division 3 – 15:00 – 16:29
Division 4 – 16:30 – 17:59
Division 5 – 18:00 and over
How do I set my Division?
Paddlers must complete a 2km time trial on the board they are using for the upcoming series or race. To verify your 2km time and Division, you must complete the Paddler Verification form. Full details on what you need to do can be found here.
How do you enter?
Each race can be entered individually, or you can buy a series ticket if you plan to compete in all five events through Webscorer here.
