'Battle For The Bay' on Bull Island This Weekend

#KITESURFING - Ireland's top kitesurfers and stand-up paddlers will be out in force on Dollymount Strand this weekend for the sixth Battle For The Bay.

The second leg of the Irish Kitesurfing Association (ISKA) Tour will see the best of Irish kitesurfing talent take on riders from around the globe at one of the best spots in Ireland for the sport. Organisers describe the concept as very simple: fun, wind, watt and fun!

Stand-up paddleboarding - a hybrid of longboarding and kayaking - will also have its day in the sun with the second annual Battle For The Paddle.
 
Racing will be the highlight, of course, but the weekend will also feature demos on the beach, a freestyle show and kite introductions for newcomers, plus a beach party and BBQ and much more.

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.
