Following the HUGE success of both the 2015 and 2016 races, the Centre is preparing for another ‘Great Cumbrae Kayak Race’, due to take place on Saturday 12th August 2017.
Again, there will be a race ‘around the island’, as well as a shortened course for Junior competitors. The race is open to any canoe kayak including sea kayak, sit on top, racing ski,
stand up paddle board.
This is an open event and should be a fun yet challenging afternoon on the water, with great prizes on offer and a complimentary post-race BBQ!
3-race series: You can of course enter the Great Cumbrae Kayak Race independently, however, like last year, the Cumbrae race, along with The Firth of Forth Race and The Royal West of Scotland Amateur Boat Club Race, will form part of a 3-race series for those wanting to participate in all 3! (NB: Bookings on this website are for the Cumbrae race only).
Cumbrae Race Essentials:
We have prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd placed Male, Female and Junior competitors, including an overall winner!
1st place ‘Around the Island’ Male: £100 towards any course at the centre.
1st place ‘Around the Island’ Female: £100 towards any course at the centre.
1st place ‘mini race’: £50 towards any course at the centre.
3-Race series: If you decide to take part in all 3 races (Cumbrae, The Firth of Forth Race and The Royal West of Scotland Amateur Boat Club Race), the aggregate score from each will be combined to give an overall winner. Prizes for 3-race series TBC.
