World-Class Wakeboarding To Feature At Docklands Summer Festival 2015

15th May 2015
World-Class Wakeboarding To Feature At Docklands Summer Festival 2015

#Docklands - World-class wakeboarding comes to Dublin's Grand Canal Dock this weekend (16-17 May) at the Waterways Ireland Docklands Summer Festival 2015.

Prepare to be wowed as the world's best wakeboarders showcase an array of grabs, spins and tricks, including European champion Carro Djupsjo from Sweden, British champion Meg Barker and Irish champion David O'Caoimh.

Organised by the Docklands Business Forum, the festival attracted over 60,000 visitors across the two days in 2014, with an even greater attendance expected this year.

The weekend will see an abundance of entertainment and competitions on both the water and the land. With everything from open air DJs, water sport come-try-it-sessions, a water golf challenge (with floating golfing green) to the tricky FM104 Corporate Raft Challenge, there will be plenty in store for a fantastic day.

The world-class wakeboarding demonstrations will feature a first ever for Ireland, with the public voting for the best performer through the unique DockFest15 voting app and big screen.

And there's lots on offer for the kids too including a 'rubber ducky' race, a children's arts centre at the Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre, a family funfair, champion street performers and international food markets.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
