The event saw 18 Zapcat teams, representing England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, in rounds three and four of the Zapcat Racing National Championship, as well as the first two rounds of the newly created Zapcat Racing City Championship.

Zapcats are four metre long catamarans, developed from life saving “surf rescue craft”, with 50 horsepower outboards engines on the back. They are crewed by a pilot and a co-pilot, with the co-pilot`s job is to balance and trim the boat.

Races are usually around five laps long, and all boats compete in five races per day with two days racing per weekend. Up to 14 boats race together at a time.
This was the first time Zapcat racing has been held in Northern Ireland since 2005 and the first time it has been held in Belfast.
