BARASSIE BEACH, TROON
The Scottish Windfest Returns to Barassie Beach, Troon!
From Friday the 21st to Sunday 23rd of September, the Scottish Windfest, Scotland’s only wind and water sports festival is back bigger and better than ever.
Organised by local enthusiasts, the Scottish Windfest is a grass-roots festival held at Barassie Beach, Troon. With over 250 participants and around ten thousand spectators expected over the weekend, the Scottish Windfest is one of the UK’s top extreme sports events.
Many of the UK’s top wind sports stars will be in attendance, all vying to win titles in a range of exciting disciplines. This year we are delighted to announce that the British Kite Surfing Association (BKSA) is bringing the Scottish leg of their UK tour to this year’s Scottish Windfest. This represents a significant coup, as the BKSA represents the highest level of domestic competition within this newest of Olympic sports.
However, the Scottish Windfest remains a mass-participation event at its heart, with plenty on offer for wind and water sports enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
Even complete beginners are well catered for with a unique programme of hour-long taster sessions available in a range of exciting wind and water sports: windsurfing, kite flying, stand-up paddling, sailing, blo-karting and kayaking.
For those happier to remain on dry land, there is a family funfair, climbing wall, laser quest and a range of trade and retail stands, along with representatives from the RNLI and HM Coastguard.
So the message is simple: If you want an action-packed family weekend, head to Troon on the 21st-23rd of September!
