Blokarting Session – Speed and Excitement
Finmere Aerodrome – October 2019

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are delighted to announce – some exciting Blokart ‘Taster’ Sessions on Sunday 20th Oct 2019.

Kiwi Blokarts UK is owned and run by Steve Harvey, who is waiting to welcome us to what promises to be a day of fun, excitement, speed, learning, laughter and discovery.

blokartsThe Blokart is a small, easily portable, type of landyacht – like a wheeled seat with a huge sail. You sit close to the ground and the impression of speed is tremendous. In fact it is fast! ┬áThe European Blokart speed record is an amazing 59.6mph. It’s faster than sailing on water and it’s an incredibly manoeuvrable craft. The beauty for us is that it is all hand controls and you don’t need to use your legs at all.

Steve has a passion for sailing and won the British Blokart Championship in both 2007 and 2008. He came 3rd in 2009 and a very respectable 10th in the World Blokart Championship. So you are in very safe (if somewhat speedy) hands.

There is a wheelchair accessible toilet and crew room complete with Tea and Coffee facilities, Mircrowave and somewhere to thaw out in bad weather. There is no cafe on site so you will need to bring along a packed lunch.

We’ll have several karts available and the format is: Meet and greet; a briefing and training session; and then YOU will be sailing!

And don’t worry if you have never even thought about, or heard of, Land Yachting or Blokarting before. Novices and never-evers are absolutely welcomed. It’s what Steve and the team do best!

They’ll be on hand to help get you in and out of the craft and to tutor you in the finer details of flying on the ground.

It’s different, fun and exciting, You may even surprise yourself!

By definition it can be very breezy and open to the elements. So please bring warm clothing and sturdy enclosed footwear (trainers are fine). If it’s rainy you might require a change of clothes.

So, here are the details for your diary:
