The PE2EL Surf Ski Challenge, from Port Elizabeth to East London in South Africa, is a four day
open ocean racing surfski marathon over a 250 km course on the “Sunshine Coast”.
The race is widely regarded as the toughest surfski race in the world and attracts elite competitors.Tim Fey, a participant in the PE2EL Surf Ski Challenge race, found himself in an emergency situation and was rescued with the aid of the NSRI SafeTrx app. Tim said “Losing my surfski 2 km out to sea was a frightening experience. SafeTrx played a vital role in my rescue. Using SafeTrx meant my rescuers knew my exact position; it took the search out of the rescue. Seeing the rescue boat coming straight towards me was an incredible feeling.”
