Entries for FBOR’23 are open as of today, 1st February! This 8th year of the Fishguard Bay Ocean Race will be on 8th & 9th July 2023.
Already a favourite as the major downwind race on the GB Ocean Ski circuit, FBOR’23 is open to even more classes of Ski plus SUPs and Prone Boards and, for the first time Six, Double and Single Ocean Canoes (OC6, OC2, OC1)
Fishguard Bay Ocean Race is a community-based, volunteer-run, non-profit event run by Canoe Wales affiliated club, Pembrokeshire Ocean Paddlers in our ideal location for ocean canoe racing, currently offering the only GB point to point, downwind race outside of Scotland..
On Saturday 8th FBOR’22 hosts the 2023 Welsh Ocean Ski National Championships, which is also a key GB Ocean Racing Team selection. These are all Elite, international level athletes so the pace will be blistering over every inch of the 17km race.
Sunday races on the 9th are still challenging but intended as a more fun event for intermediate and advanced ski paddlers and the best Ocean Canoe, SUP and Prone competitors, all who vie for the lead throughout this 13km race.
For your safety, FBOR’23 will again be using personal trackers to know exactly where every competitor is at all times.
Looking forward to seeing your here in July!
