Sunday 1st October 2000. The death of the commercial hovercraft. Its final channel crossing and the end of an era.
Luckily fans of the once futuristic machines have ensured they live on and re-capture peoples imaginations. Hovercrafts are the ideal event for those that are after something unique and enjoy laughing at others trying to muster up the co-ordination to control them.
They come in either a 2 or 4 stroke engine and although they can gather up some good speed, the fun comes from trying to navigate them through cones or around a track.
