Beach holds UK event
THE British Blokart Championships are set to return to Cefn Sidan Beach from September 28-30.
A Blokart is a type of mini-landyacht which is gaining tremendous popularity due to its relatively low cost and high degree of accessibility for all ages and abilities.
They are easy to learn to sail and fun for the family, but are far faster than any of the sailing boats seen at the Olympic Games.
The European speed record was set at Cefn Sidan — a stunning 59.6mph.

The British Open is set to be the largest single-make land-sailing event in the UK this year with more than 50 craft battling it out in close racing.
A spokesman said: "We are expecting racers from under 10 years old to over 80 and it's not just for the able-bodied.
"Because the Blokart is hand-steered, it makes it a competitive sport for people with disabilities such as paralysis, prosthetic legs or cerebral palsy."
Previous years have seen competitors coming from across Europe and even as far as New Zealand and Australia.
