Allen Endurance Series
The Allen Endurance Series has grown in strength and popularity since being launched in 2018. Changes for 2020 include a five race format spread across the country with one discard to open the series up to a wider geographical spread, and an increased prize fund, now totalling over £1,500. Each event takes place over a weekend with a social event on Saturday night.
The Allen Endurance Series has proved highly popular with fast cat crews, especially F18 sailors, with the high-performance catamaran claiming all 3 of the top overall podium spots for the second year running. However, with a total of 150 different entries over the 4 events last year, it is by no means a series of one-horse races. Fast skiffs and International Moths have also made successful appearances and the only common factor is the desire of the crews to push themselves to the limit.
