Blazing Swan Easter 2019 WA

Recommended Posts

Blazing Swan in an official regional Burning Man event.

The event is held over 5 days on the Easter long weekend and in recent years has attracted about 2500 participants. This year (2019) a couple of us are organising a wind sports theme camp with the intention of promoting land sailing, kite bugying and wind sports in general. Anyone who is interested is welcome to come along and join our camp, sail all day and party all night what could possibly go wrong? While tickets are not cheap at $300 per person they are fair value for a 5 day festival.

The event site is located on the western shore of Jilakin Lake near Kulin about 3h east of Perth. Jilakin Lake is approx 4km wide and 4km long with a surface area of 14sqkm. To be honest the amount of water on the lake at Easter is variable in 2014 it was too wet to sail, in 2018 it was totally dry and perfect sailing. However on the + side the area is renowned for constant winds at that time of year its almost guaranteed that there will be plenty of wind.

So in preparation for this event I have built a full sized trailer to tow behind my Kite buggy. We expect to be giving a truckload of joyrides to interested revelers.

I have 6 and 8 m Ozone Access's unfortunately these will be a little small for the task of towing a passenger. Looking for a reasonably priced 2nd hand 12m de-power foil (non racing type). Or if i'm really lucky a kite shop to sponsor us with some demo gear?  This will be a pretty high profile event if conditions are good 2500 people will spend 5 days watching a couple of us blasting up and down the lake every day.

4th wheel coming soon
