Paddlers have fewer than 100 days to train for the single most challenging event in the Surfski calendar: the 244km Port Elizabeth to East London "Surfski Challenge".
Changes this year include the omission of Woody Cape on the first day, and the one-way running of the race. In the past, organisers have run sections of the course "backwards" during bad weather to give paddlers a downwind leg. Not this year. In addition the Sunday is being reserved as a spare day in case any of the other days has to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

Eleven-time Molokai Champion Oscar Chalupsky decided late last week to enter the Old Mutual Bank Port Elizabeth to East London surf ski race, a four-day 244km marathon considered to be the world's toughest ocean marathon. Fresh from an impressive two-day World Cup win in Perth and strong second place finish a week later in Dubai, the 43-year-old Chalupsky will be competing in his 10th PE2EL, which is held every second year.
