The 2017 Oban Sea Kayak Race takes place on Saturday 26th August 2017 (UK Summer Bank Holiday weekend excl Scotland) with a 1pm start.
The 2016 race - held in totally calm warm conditions - 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 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 exposed waters, but one that makes for a memorable and fun event.
All proceeds from Oban Sea Kayak Race and the Lismore Challenge are in aid of Oban Lifeboat. We are pleased to announce that the 2016 races raised an amazing £2000 for the Oban Lifeboat Station. We would like to thank all kayakers and sponsors who helped make these events so successful and for contributing to the final sum of money raised.
