Welcome to our race!

The 2017 Oban Sea Kayak Race took place on Saturday 26th August 2017, with nearly 50 paddlers taking part. You can read the Race Results here.

This year's race saw a fantastic mix of single and double sea kayaks, sea kayak teams and the continued growth in ocean surf skis. Read more about the Race Categories and Team Trophy. Covering a distance of 20km, the race 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 often exposed waters, but one that makes for a memorable and fun event.

All proceeds from Oban Sea Kayak Race are in aid of Oban Lifeboat. We'll report the total raised at this year's race shortly, many thanks to all who helped in raising money for this cause.
