“The most exciting adventure you can have on three wheels!” The Independent

Why we love it

Travelling at up to three times the speed of wind, land yachting really is a blast! The reason being, the wheel bearings produce much less resistance than a hull being dragged through water, creating more opportunity for speed. Using your feet to control the front wheel for steering and your hands to control the sail, you’re in for an unforgettable experience - one which is said to have first been enjoyed by the Ancient Egyptians!

What's Included?

  • Feel adventurous with group land yachting for two with Fishy's Land Yachts
  • Enjoy being part of a group of no more than six for your two-hour experience
  • Take turns in a land yacht to reach speeds of up to 40mph (one land yacht for two people)
  • Receive expert tuition from a professional on how to safely ride the land yacht
  • All safety equipment will be provided

Description

There is some evidence that ancient Egyptians dabbled in land yachting way back in 1400BC. It then seemed to re-emerge in the 16th century when a Flemish scientist invented a wind-powered vehicle for transporting troops using a similar design.

Land yachting was developed as a sport at the end of the 19th century, where beach racing was the most common. Nowadays, land yachting or land sailing is a popular racing sport and hosts large international events.

During your land yachting experience, you will be under the professional guidance of Andy from Fishy’s Land Yachts. With over 16 years of experience in teaching land yachts and kite buggies, Andy will provide you with all the safety instructions needed to ride the yacht with confidence and ease.

Your session for two will start with a briefing on safety, riding techniques and step-by-step instructions on how to harness the wind to get the most out of your day. As the yacht has no passenger seat, you'll take turns to practice on a figure of 8 course, learning basic movements until you feel comfortable enough to progress to the great outdoors. As part of a group, you’ll be able to learn from each other and enjoy watching others as they navigate their way around.
