Extractions: top Skydiving Helicopter flying Snowboarding ... Lacrosse Land Yachting Hiking Electronics Language GPS ... Rants Land yachting? Sand yachting? It amounts to more or less the same thing. A perfect solution if you want to go sailing but aren't near a large body of water; or if you don't want to get wet! Ideally sand yachting would be on a beach (a large, flat, firm beach with not too many sunbathers), but land yachting is the more general term, for sand, deserted airfields, or any other suitable surface. Depending on the outside temperature there is also the possibility of ice yachting, but we won't go into that here. Put simply, it's like a long, thin, three-wheeled buggy with enough room for one person to sit inside. The wheels are like small bicycle wheels, with tyres, and the single front wheel does the steering using foot pedals inside the buggy. Push your right foot forward to go left, and push your left foot forward to go right. It's quite easy. But of course it wouldn't be sailing without a sail, so attached to the top is what looks just like a windsurf sail. A rope is attached through pulleys to the sail, so that tweaking the tension in the sail, and the angle it presents to the wind, results in ever greater speed.

New Land Sailor Design MY New Land Sailor Design. Design Requirements . A primary design requirement was that the Land Sailor operate in wind speeds below 10 mph. Down to as low as 6 or 7 mph if possible. http://users.techline.com/lord/yacht6.html
Extractions: Design Requirements A primary design requirement was that the Land Sailor operate in wind speeds below 10 mph. Down to as low as 6 or 7 mph if possible. This meant that it must carry a large sail. I checked Windance at Hood River for a large reasonably priced large sail and was able to come up with an 8.8 m^2 used windsurfer sail in good condition at a good price. Another primary design requirement was that the system be easily portable, not easy for a yacht that must carry a large sail. Design Implementation The picture on the left is of the "T" or center section of the yacht. Aluminium plate 3/16 in. thick is bolted to both the top and bottom to provide structural stifness.

Extractions: Calm weather fails to hit overnight land yachting challenge A lack of wind almost blew away plans for a 12-hour endurance land yachting event to be held in Brean. A breeze is essential to blow the land yachts along the beach, but when calm conditions settled over the beach as the event was launched, members of Brean Land Yachting Club decided to go ahead anyway, so walked around the course for the 12 hours instead. "Rather than cancel it, we decided to walk around the course on the beach during the 12 hours of the challenge between 8pm and 8am," organiser Martyn Hale told Burnham-On-Sea.com. of local lady Julie Selway early this year. Martyn said: "When we reached the beach in the afternoon we thought we had the perfect day for our challenge. It was warm, dry and, most importantly of all, windy!" "By 4pm our banners were in place, the yachts were causing interest and the barbecue was lit. By 5pm all pilots taking part were ready and many sausages and burgers had been consumed." "But by 6pm, when the four Standarts and two Class 5's were attempting to sail, the wind was steadily dropping, and finally they came in at 7.15 to set the challenge course."
