Blokart club Ireland members are from all over Ireland.
We organise & attend all land sailing events across the country. Because of the nature of the sport we are not based in any one location. We go where the conditions for the sport are good at that time.
Our favourite locations in Northern Ireland include :
BENONE BEACH, LIMAVADY
MURLOUGH BEACH, NEWCASTLE
TYRELLA BEACH, NEAR DOWNPATRICK
CRANFIELD BEACH, NEAR KILLKEEL
Check out the club website for our next outing.
SAND YACHTING OR LAND SAILING
Blokart is a brand of mini sand yacht.
Blokart Club Ireland is a club for anyone interested in blokart Sailing in Ireland. The club was formed in January 2010.
A blokart is a mini sand yacht which is hand steered. The hand steering eliminates any requirement for length adjustment for different sized users. This makes a blokart an ideal choice for familys.
A group of Irish Blokart Sailors who were willing to promote the sport of blokart sailing across Ireland got together & organised themselves.
As with dingy sailing all its power comes from the wind. The sail is designed in such a way that it captures the wind and transfers the power into forward motion.
Controling a blokart is very simple. Control comes from the handle bar and the sheet rope which determines the angle of your sail. Because it is so easy to operate, even young children feel confident quite quickly.
One of the most amazing features of a Blokart is that is fits neatly into it's own carry / storage bag. The bag, is less that 1.2 meters in length which means it fits into the boot of the average car.
Visit the Club website & get in touch with anyone on the contacts page. Someone will reply with details of how to get involved in blokart sailing across Ireland.
We have a great relationship with the local Blokart dealers who are able to provide safe, professional taster sessions for first time blokart sailors.
Occasionally a blokart activity provider will offer a short FREE taster session at a club day. These are usually organised by prior arrangement.
The club is affiliated to the National Governing body for Blokarting & all members must agree to abide by the rules laid down by that association.
We organise events ranging from Fun days for families right up to international course racing.
