The event was last held in Hoylake in 2007 (as pictured) and attracts land yachting racing teams from the UK and several European countries. The event runs from today, Monday 5th September until Friday 9th.
Do take care if you are out on the beach. Access routes for the yachts should be clearly marked with flags. The yachts are raced out on the sandbank and are either pushed or towed back to the prom when racing has finished for the day.
Also, keep an eye on the new webcam that has been installed at Hoylake Lifeboat Museum. Note the refresh was somewhat delayed for me when I viewed it earlier.
