The Moray Firth Sea Kayak Challenge

Saturday 24 July 2021

On-line entries are closed. You can still enter in person on the day between 10:00 and 12:00.

Enjoy paddling in the Moray Firth from Ardersier to Nairn following a route which will take you between Fort George and Chanonry Point which is famous for its dolphins. 

The event is based in Nairn which is a twenty minute drive from Inverness Airport and is therefore easily accessible from many parts of the country including: London; Birmingham; Manchester; Belfast City; and Bristol. 

You can complete the challenge in any kind of sea kayak, surf ski or canoe, racing or recreational, that is designed/suitable for use on the sea. There are male and female categories for touring, performance sea racing canoes and kayaks and surf skis.

The prevailing wind is from the west so the expected route is from Arderseir to Nairn. Should there be an easterly wind there is an alternative route from Findhorn to Nairn which may be used.

Entry before Sunday 04 July 2021 is necessary if you want to take advantage of the early bird rate. Entries are accepted up to and including the day of the event. Should it be necessary to cancel this year's event because of changes to Covid-19 arrangements we will refund entries via PayPal.

The event is being organised by Nairn Kayak Club and is based in Nairn.

Please read the rules before you enter.
