In its third year the Celtic Crossing continues to draw attention world wide. The event date has been set for September 24th and all paddle disciplines will cross at the same time; these will include single and double ski, V6 Outrigger, OC1 & 2, SUP and prone paddle boards.

New for this year we will integrate a team relay for SUP and prone boards (2 people 1 board) as well as OC2 in this relay category which will include four people sharing one craft and escort boat.

The Celtic Crossing is more than just an event it is an experience of a life time. Nothing can truly prepare you for looking at a distant horizon and paddling toward it for 3hrs before seeing glimpses of land for the first time. The Crossing is a multi day event giving you time to marvel at the stunning coastlines of Cornwall and the Scilly Isles.

ENTRY INFORMATION

Event entry includes two nights* accommodation over on the Scillys, equipment transport, ferry tickets, escort boat, goody bag and the coveted limited edition race t-shirt. To help reduce cost of entry we will allow competitors to supply their own escort boats however, the crossing is dangerous enough and all boats must meet strict conditions in order to be included (details supplied upon request).

* accommodation allows provision for a delayed start on the Sunday

Due to limited availability of accommodation over on the Scillys we must block book beds – to secure your place in this years Celtic Crossing 50% deposit must provided by the June 23rd deadline and remaining balance due September 1st (no tickets will be issued without full payment prior to departure).

Unfortunately due to the large front end costs and labour involved organising the event refunds cannot be offered.

In a move to make the event more accessible a two person relay option will be available for SUP and prone boards. Due to the availability to bigger escort boats teams will be restricted to using only one craft per team.

If you would like to provide your own escort boat please contact us directly at glenn@oceansportuk.com
