Many thanks to Graham Thwaite for this week’s Friday Photo.
Pictured are the kite buggies out on the sand bank off Hoylake competing last week in the 2011 European Championships.
The event should not be (though it has been, including by me) confused with the land yacht championships that are scheduled to start tomorrow (Saturday 17th). I’ve seen a few competitors arrive and park-up their land yachts on the sand behind the promenade wall and there were a few motorhomes at the bottom of Hoyle Road last night.
Do take the opportunity to come down to the beach as it’s great to hear a wide variety of different languages spoken by the competitors and the colours on the yacht sails make for a vivid display and an excellent photo opportunity.
