The Blackrock Blast
June 17th this year saw the “Blackrock Blast” turn from an idea into reality.
50 jetskis rode 100 km from Blackrock Sands, Porthmadog to Aberdyfi & back….taking in a visit to Barmouth on the way.
The riders were treated to a boat flotilla welcome into Barmouth & a flotilla welcome through an inflatable finish line in Aberdyfi.
The event was sponsored by Datatag, RJP Marine, The Personal Watercraft Partnership, Yamaha & BRP Seadoo…..as well as by local watercraft dealerships Robert Owen Marine & Ideal Boat.
The purpose of the event was not only to highlight Responsible Watercraft use & the attractions of North Wales, but also to raise vital funds foe Wales Air Ambulance…….And all our expectations were blown out of the water! We didn’t expect 50 jetski’s to turn up for the event (we had dreamt of 50, but really didn’t expect it) & we certainly didn’t expect to raise the incredible sum of £4220 that the day realised!!!
Plans are already underway for a 2018 event…..Watch this space!!
