Wild Water Hovercraft Racing
If you’ve tried drifting on four wheels you’ll LOVE the slide over grass and wild water piloting ODD’s new, faster ‘Marlin Beast Hovercraft’ in an exhilarating Wild Water Drifting Experience.
Your instructor will provide tuition and a safety briefing, then once skilled-up you’ll fly unaccompanied around a course out on Brackley Lake, with on-going instruction through Bluetooth headset.
It’s a fast, weird and exhilarating drift – with no brakes!”
There’s no other machine quite as quirky as a hovercraft.
They’re challenging, exciting, scarily unpredictable and great fun. That about covers it!
What Hovercraft Racing at ODD is:
–a completely unique flying lesson
– a single-seater Formula 25 hovercraft
– part plane-part jet ski, with no brakes!
-like driving on ice –you aim to go forward, preferably not sideways – and not doing donuts!
-racing a craft you are not harnessed into
-a bit weather-dependant (high winds and fog aren’t good)
What it isn’t:
-not for wimps!
-not for under 16s
-something you’ve experienced before!
What makes ODD’s hovercraft experience unique:
-only venue in Ireland
-only venue using wild open water as part of the course
-only venue with grass to lake and lake to grass transition points (also known as shoreline!)
-you leave as a Pilot!
What happens when you get here:
-issued with lifejackets, wet gear and helmet
-a full briefing and ongoing tuition from our experienced instructors
-learn how to lift, move forward, set down and stop
-fly solo against the clock, two craft at a time, at full throttle to keep your ‘nose’ up!
-you ignore the warning voices in your head about heading off the water at full speed, and you GO FOR IT!
When you can fly:
-usually Thurs day – Sunday as a small group or couple,pre-booked. (note: 17 stone weight restriction)
-on reserved Hovercrafting Grand Prix Event days for voucher holders.
