Land Yachting

Land Yachting uses 3-wheeled vehicles attached to a sail which can reach speeds in excess of 40mph. The rider sits or lays down, close to the ground, using feet to control the front wheel for steering and hands to control the sail.

Land Yachts can travel at between 2 and 3 times the speed of the wind yet can be propelled by winds of less than 10mph.

Pros

  • Easy to learn
  • Power is free
  • Suitable for all ages

Cons

  • Wind and weather dependant
  • Need empty spaces to sail in safety
