BRITISH KITE SURFING ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONSHIP - 2010
The weekend 6th to 8th August 2010, again brought with a major event to Walney Island, in that the British Kite Surfing Association Championship once again arrived at Earnse Bay. The weather was perfect for Kite Surfing and the many sight-seer's to. The wind was quite strong, keeping the kites in the air, but it was also both fine and sunny, keeping the ever increasing crowd happy. Kite surfing has come along way on Walney since its introduction only a few short years ago, so here's hoping that this sport continues to thrive on the island.
Having said that this years event was marred by one or two individuals (local or visitor, it can't be said for sure) who really didn't respect the island nor' care to much when it came to good housekeeping. They had set themselves aside from the rest of this well respected group, only to be out of line of sight. As well as leaving a large quantity of rubbish, more importantly they burnt a fire pit into a 'site of special scientific interest'. It can't be easy to put events like this together so those who do need your support! The island likes to play its part and allow for these events to take place so when you visit please consider others and act responsibly, dispose of your rubbish in an appropriate manner and care for the island like it was your own home.
