The Irish Power Kite and Sandyacht Association are out in force this weekend at Streedagh Beach, County Sligo. Jackie and Matthew both had a go, matthew was just a wee bit short for the mini buggies but Jackie had great crack and now declares it her new sport. I was taking pictures but will try it out in the future.
Streedagh beach is a perfect place for this activity but unfortunately it is normally not legal on this beach. Allowed in plenty of other places though including Rosses Point.
more info on all aspects of power kiting and sand yachting can be found here http://www.ipksa.info/
I will return tomorrow for a few more photos hopefully with stronger winds for a bit more drama.
