The fifth Oban Sea Kayak Race takes place on Saturday 23rd August 2014 - racing around the island of Kerrera, off Oban Bay.
Last year's race saw a fantastic mix of single and double sea kayaks, sea kayak teams and a new performance race category including ocean surf ski. Read more about the Race Categories and Team Trophy. Covering a distance of 20km, the 80 or so paddlers circumnavigated the beautiful and rugged Island of Kerrera, beginning and ending at Oban on Scotland's beautiful west coast. It's a demanding route, through remote and exposed waters, but one that makes for a memorable and fun event. You can read the 2013 Race Results here.
All proceeds from Oban Sea Kayak Race are in aid of Oban Lifeboat. The 2013 Race raised a magnificent £2800 - many thanks to all who helped raise this fantastic sum.
