Daring pilots battled rough seas and wind while taking part in offshore powerboat racing in Lowestoft.

Powerboating returned to the shores of Lowestoft with the Offshore Circuit Racing Drivers Association’s debut on the town’s shores for their 2018 finale.

The boats were racing between buoys off the South Pier and to the south of Claremont Pier, with spectators watching from the seafront beach area adjacent to the pits and the promenade.
