Land Yachting

Come and try Land yachting . We will show you how to sail and operate our land yachts under  instruction . Our beach at Greatstone is over 3 miles long and 1/2  a mile wide at low tide and offers an unrivaled expanse of hard sand in the South East of England for our sport. You will start with friendly instruction of the basics of the land yacht including all controls and  the safety equipment. You will then be given a helmet, then taken to a yacht  which you will climb into, then again running through the controls and how to operate them. Key safety advice will allow you to stop in a safe manner. Now the exciting part you will sail a small course  around two cones with a gently push from your instructor and verbal guidance. You will  sail several laps of the course returning with hopefully a smile on your face, you will then be able to sail with a small group on your own.

Please bring a change of clothes/clothes that you do not mind getting wet or sandy including shoes/trainers. Gloves and Helmets will be provided.

Hopefully there will be a chance to play with a few different styles of land Yacht some you sit down and some you are in a lying  position. There will be a bit of sharing involved over the four hours your get plenty of time to get your fix it can also be quite tiring.

    A great day and another great event. The group leader excelled again in choosing an event offering loads of fun. Long may the group continue to be imaginative with its choice of events which in turn will be assured my attendance :)

    Thanks Paul for organising a great event. The equipment was ready, the location was perfect, the rain stopped and the sun came out. We could have done with a bit more wind once we had mastered the basics but I won't hold that against you.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
