About the Fishguard Bay Ocean Race 2021

Racing for the Welsh Ocean Ski National Championship, FBOR Line Honours and Class Trophies

Fishguard Bay Ocean Race 2021 (FBOR’21) is a major downwind race for Ocean Racing Skis, along Pembrokeshire’s wild, award winning north coast – starting at Goodwick beach and crossing 17km of open sea to finish on the wide sandy beach at Newport.

You’ll paddle deep clear water, past towering cliffs, a couple of fun tide-races, a skid turn around a wave-tossed rock and a final sprint up the beach at Newport Surf Lifesaving Club. And this year we’re keeping fingers crossed for epic downwind conditions!

The Fishguard Bay Ocean Race 2021 is the 6th year of this annual tussle and Canoe Wales has  just awarded Welsh Ocean Ski National Championship status.
Paddlers from all over the UK and beyond will be vying to show their extreme fitness, boat-handling and seamanship skills, to win this “black-belt,” no-holds-barred ocean race.

The blue riband prizes are:

The perennial FBOR Trophy, awarded to THE FIRST to cross the finish line –  and the Dragon-Wave Trophy for the FIRST WELSH PADDLER. We hope they are one and the same!
