There was a change in route on the PE2EL Surfski Challenge today, as paddlers set out from Port Alfred’s West Beach toward Woody Cape, instead of the other way around. Race organisers decided that paddling into a headwind would be too tough on competitors and it would take them too long to finish the second day of the Port Elizabeth to East London surfski race, which is raced over four days. Paddlers set out from Blue Water Bay in Port Elizabeth yesterday and finished at Woody Cape. Tomorrow they will start again at Port Alfred and head to Hamburg. Then the final day on Saturday is from Hamburg to East London.
