This is a great 20km event starting and finishing at Oban. There are different categories, plus you need to be pretty fit, so please check the website for full details.
There just aren’t enough kayak races, so this is a great chance to have some fun over 20km. Starting at Ganavan beach, you paddle as fast as you can to Lismore lighthouse and back again. First one back is the winner! All proceeds to Oban lifeboat.
This is the festival’s third year, and you can expect ocean related films, talks, watersports and seafood. There’s even a sea costume parade, where you can dress up as a dolphin or a moray eel! See the website for further details.
