Inspired by ruthless German kite buggy racing efficiency, where flyers developed rapidly at their week long 'Buggy Camp' in the early years, Buggy Camps are designed around raising the skill level of all those who attend no matter what buggy you sit in or what kite you fly.
- Come along and get guidance with your first spin in a buggy.
- Take your buggying further with a range of games planned to develop your skills.
- Test yourself on some of our skills challenges.
- Get guidance on specific manouvers from experienced pilots
- And of course we might do some racing for fun, no licence required!
Games and Challenges
As well as guidance for new flyers and buggiers, and fun racing for all (no licence required, just competence!) Buggy Camps will have a range of challenges and games that could take place throughout the weekend. Set by experienced racers and race officers they will test your capabilities with both buggy and kite and can be tailored to any skill level:
Buggy Camp with WSYC :: 27 & 28 July 2019 :: Hoylake
Hoylake has a sandbank that creates a vast lagoon of sand so you can buggy without worrying about tides for days at a time. This is why the local WSYC and PKA choose it to hold events every year.
Hoylake and the WSYC will welcome the first Buggy Camp of 2019, with camping and night flying available on the beach, a social BBQ and all the buggying enjoyment you can wish for. Entry to the event will cost £10 per person and you can join in with all activites and guests can join the BBQ by contributing £5. If you would like to stay in your car or campervan in the WSYC car park and have access to the toilet facilities then an overnight stay will cost £10 per unit per night, camping on the beach will cost just £5 (as it's a longer walk to the toilets!).
