First time the show comes to Cromer, this w/e
The seaside resort of Cromer, on Norfolk’s east coast, is treated to its first taste of the RYA National Zapcat Championship this weekend.
This is the first time Zapcat Racing has ever been to East Anglia and organisers are looking to whip up a frenzy among the beachgoers and holidaymakers.
The current National Champions, Pegasus Vortex Racing, made up of Pilot Mick Pritchard (Southampton) and Co-pilot Baz Minns (Christchurch), will be making the journey in the hope of increasing their 80 point lead in the championship and walking away with the inaugural Cromer Grand Prix Title.
If they fail to do so, however, they are assured one major consolation prize – Cromer boasts some of the best fish and chips on the British coast.
The Cromer event will make up rounds seven and eight of the Zapcat national championship and over 20 teams from around Britain are expected to attend.
Zapcat racing provides fast and furious entertainment close to the beach so spectators will be able to see all the action up close as the twin-hulled inflatables make their way round the course at speeds of up to 50mph.
Racing will take place from noon on both Saturday and Sunday to the west of Cromer Pier.
