GBROC & Mini G 2021
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.
