Fishguard Bay Ocean Race is FBOR'19 - a major downwind ocean Ski, SUP and OC race along Pembrokeshire’s wild and beautiful north coast
The race will start from Goodwick Parrog near Fishguard and finishing 17km of big Atlantic rollers later on the broad and welcoming beach at Newport Sands.
In this race, elite paddlers from the UK and beyond will be vying to show their extreme fitness, boat-handling and seamanship skills, to win this “black-belt,” no-holds-barred ocean race.
We want wind and we want waves, so the event is planned to ride the equinoctial winds that sweep along the N Pembs coast – hence May – we also needs the tide in the right direction, particularly around Dinas Head.
Starting on Goodwick Beach, 4km to Pen Anglas, an entirely exposed 10km open-sea section that, at half way, skims close by the cliffs, reefs and tidal overfalls of Dinas Head, finally rounding rugged Cerrig Edrywy and sprinting the final 1.5 km to finish between the flags on Newport Sands Beach (below the Surf Lifesaving Club)
The different classes that will all receive a trophy are:
- Classes – all with trophies!
- Single Ski: Open (to 39), Masters (40 – 55), Veterans (over 55) and Ladies
- Double Ski.
- Open SUP (Stand Up Paddleboards) and Ladies SUP
- Ocean Canoes: 1, 2, 6
