The Great Barrier Reef Ocean Challenge (GBROC) is BACK in 2021 and we want YOU to be a part of it!

If there’s one thing the past 12 months has shown us is to never take for granted the opportunities we have to take to the ocean together. GBROC gives us the ultimate test of endurance and skill against one of the most consistently, awesome downwind runs anywhere in Australia.

In 2021 we honour the effort of 1000s of paddlers who have been a part of the GBROC story for the past 10 years. At 45 kilometres, the event remains the longest, most gruelling iron event and is now open to ALL craft (OC6, OC1, OC2, V1, V3, ski (Ocean & Spec., SUP, Prone & SUP Foil)  in changeover format. Contact Us  or our race co-ordinator Sue Lockwood on 0438 129 575 if you’d like to know more about these options, including hiring craft and support boats. Early Bird Race Nominations CLOSE SATURDAY  17TH JULY AT 6:00PM. You can Download the Race Program HERE

Not quite ready to go the distance? The popular 17km Mini G (Cairns Marina to Yorkeys Knob) is the perfect way to ensure you don’t miss out on the action or fun of a downwind run.

So set your intentions now, get your crew and/or craft together and we’ll see you in paradise on July 31-August 1 to celebrate a special milestone: 10 years of salt, sweat and tears!

SAVE THE DATE. All crews/craft are invited to be a part of the 10th anniversary GBROC 2021 from Yorkeys Knob to Port Douglas (iron or changeover) on Saturday, July 31, 8.30am start and Mini G (17km) on Sunday, August 1, 9.30am start at Cairns Marlin Marina.
