International Smack Race Festival

Historic Sailing Smacks Race at Sea

On Saturday 30 July, the waters off Lowestoft Ness will be festooned with the red sails of traditionally rigged sailing smacks as The Excelsior Trust hosts an international smack race.

This one off event will be staged to celebrate the centenary of Lowestoft's own 77ft sailing vessel Excelsior LT472, an icon of the town's national fishing heritage.

The organisers are expecting up to 25 traditional vessels in Lowestoft, including the 78ft Boy Leslie from Norway and the 68ft Swan from The Shetlands. Also racing will be the 70ft Class Essex Oyster Smack Pioneer.
