What is Fishguard Bay Ocean Race 2024 – FBOR’24?

A two-day open-ocean paddlesport competition for Ocean Skis, Ocean Canoes and SUPs, racing for the Welsh Ocean Ski National Championship, GB mixed double ski championship, GB team selection, FBOR Line Honours and Class Trophies

FBOR’24 is the 9th edition of this major downwind race 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 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.

You can read more about the courses by clicking: Saturday Elite Course – Sunday Open Course
Paddlers from all over the UK and beyond compete to show their extreme fitness, navigation, boat-handling and seamanship skills, to win this “black-belt,” no-holds-barred ocean race.
You’ve got to be in it to win it!
