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 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. 

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

The blue riband prizes:

Perennial FBOR Trophy, FIRST ACROSS THE LINE – U23 Francis Huntingford.

Dragon-Wave Trophy for FIRST WELSH PADDLER – Matt Rowlands.

Open Race: FIRST ACROSS THE LINE – U18 Drew Howells.
