Back for a third year on 1&2 April 2017, ‘Legend’ brings together the UK’s best stand-up paddle boarders (SUP) and kitesurfers for one big weekend of high-adrenaline watersports.
Legend is a unique collaboration between the British Stand Up Paddleboard Association (BSUPA) and the British Kitesports Association (BKSA).
Competitors can enter either individual competitions in their favoured sport – a wave jam kitesurf event, or a SUP surf competition – or they can challenge for the coveted title of ‘Legend of the Bay’, which will be awarded to the competitor with the highest combined score from both disciplines.

There’s nothing wrong with the old classic. But if you want to build on from sugar and lemon, why not give our malted lemon pancakes with lemon curd and blueberries a go?
Indulgent pancakes that you can easily make at home for Shrove Tuesday.
100g caster sugar
200g self raising flour
1 tbsp Ovaltine malted drink
Zest of 1 lemon
Milk for consistency
Knob of butter for greasing
Good quality lemon curd
In a large bowl crack the 2 eggs and beat together, then whisk in the caster sugar for at least a minute.
Add the sifted flour, Ovaltine and lemon zest and whisk until smooth.
The mix will be quite thick and sticking to the whisk, start to add milk a little at a time keeping the mix smooth until it’s the consistency of thick cream.
Heat a non stick frying pan and grease with a little butter.
Take a ladle of the mix and pour into the pan, keep the heat moderate and wait for bubbles and pits to appear on the surface before turning, leave for 30 seconds before taking out of the pan and serving.
Stack high and serve with lemon curd and blueberries.
Some other options to try;
– Berries and clotted cream
– Dry cured streaky bacon, maple syrup and bananas
– Salted caramel sauce and vanilla crème fraiche
Like mulled wine, but even better – the Zacry’s team take the traditional flavours of Christmas pudding as inspiration for this warming drink.
Red wine 100ml
Sugar syrup or honey (to sweeten if needed)
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small pat and heat on the hob. (In Zacry’s the team use a silver milk jug and steam to heat.)
Serve in heated toddy glass old-school late class – making sure the clove is not served!
Garnish with an orange twist
Heat your mulled wine or Christmas Pudding cocktail in an oven proof dish on top of your wood burner if you have one. Let the festive aromas fill your house and point Father Christmas in the right direction.
