Ocean Sports Centre Events

Looking for things to do on the weekend? The Ocean Sports Centre is a great place to start.

We just love hosting an event. Throughout the year we play host to a number of events and activities for all ages and abilities. We will announce them on here and through our social media accounts so give us a Like and a Follow and we will keep you up to date with anything we have up and coming.

The Bucca Kri

Event on Hold until 2023

After the massive interest in 2020 for this one of a kind we were devastated not be able to run the Bucca Kri – but on the grand scheme of things it really was very low down on the list of important things occurring that year. With optimism in our hearts we thought that there would be no doubt that we would run in 2021 – unfortunately, this is now not the case. With a significant number of offer seas competitors wanting to take part in this event and with international travel in limbo in light of mainland Europe’s third wave we are simply going to make a clean start in 2022. Not only that, we even have the Worlds leading figure heads arriving that same week for the G7 summit, rummer has it the British flagship aircraft carrier, Queen Elizebeth will be parked in the bay, effectively closing it off to all water users for an indefinite period of time!

With full restrictions being lifted by June 21st, G7 our June 5th date was cutting things too fine. Hence, our move to 2022 for a similar date (first week of June).

Future updates will be announced via our Facebook page (Ocean Sports Centre) and included here.

Take care everyone.


The Celtic Cup Event Cancellation 2022

St’Ives Bay Celtic Cup Event Cancelation

It is with great regret that event organiser, Glenn Eldridge, has cancelled this years edition after an almost uninterrupted run of 14 years.

“This is not something that I have taken lightly nor made on the fly – I have wrestled with this for some time this year after receiving devastating news relating to the health of my Mother who has had declining health over recent years”. Although obvious, the past couple years have highlighted for many, the true value of our health “ironically, I also have an undiagnosed chronic heart problem Doctors have been investigating – I realised that at times like these refocusing upon life’s priorities are far more important”.

It is hoped that by making an early call rather than struggling on that competitors are able to make alternative arrangements with minimal financial cost for all of our ocean ski, sup and outrigger paddlers.

In terms of the GBSUP National Series event the team are working hard with an alternative event host to run the second of technical race series. Further announcements will be made shortly on this from the GBSUP team. Similarly, the GB Ocean Ski group will make announcements regarding possible alternative events shortly.

“Once again, we sincerely apologies for the disruption this will have caused and that we hope that others can appreciate why we have made this very difficult decision – keep well everyone and get out side and paddle more”.

Sea Monkeys SUP Race Series

The past 12 months have been challenging to say the least for everyone – with lock down restrictions lifting and many major events cancelled or rescheduled there is not much left for paddlers to aim for.

The Sea Monkeys Super Saturday is a three event series (May, June July), stripping racing back to its simplest form either in ‘Challenge’ formats designed for fun and the challenge of making it around a course with no pressure to out perform others (a separate page with what this entails will be launched very soon). Later in the same evening high octane fast and furious action hits the water with straight forward categories, innovative formats for racers and teams across multiple crafts.
