Is it a boat? Is it a race car? Well... it's kind of both of
those things! Head to Kent and get ready to blast those cobwebs
away when you try your hand at operating a fast and fun Land Yacht!
This 2 hour midweek land yachting experience will teach you how get
the wind in your sail and control the land yacht as you hurtle
along Greatstone's fabulous, wide beach.
Whether you're a total beginner to the world of land-yachting or you have some experience, you'll get plenty out of your two hour training session. Beginners will be shown everything they need to know so that they're totally in control of the yacht - how to get going, how to steer, and - most importantly - how to stop! You'll start off practicing relatively short runs at a lower speed until you get used to your land yacht. You'll learn the easier type of turn - the luff turn - doing wide figure-of-eights to practice your technique. Once you're a little more confident, you'll be able to go for longer runs along the strand before turning. If you are doing well and there is time, the instructor may show you how to perform the other type of turn, called a gybe turn. Whether you get to do this or not, you'll have an absolute blast. When you know you're in control of your kart and that wind catches your sail, there is no feeling like speeding along the beach, close to the sand with a sea breeze in your face. Most people take to it quite quickly, and we predict you'll be booking further sessions after this one... or maybe even looking up the price of buying your own land yacht!
If you're looking for a superb experience gift for someone with a real sense of adventure, or you just want to try something that's guaranteed to put the wind in your sails, try this brilliant land yachting training session in Greatstone, Kent.

This land yachting experience takes place on a beach, and is
therefore dependant upon tidal times and extreme weather
The yachts use changeable sails, so can be used in both light, and high winds - this means that cancellations due to weather conditions are rare.
Had a fantastic day with plenty of sunshine and the right amount of wind to learn to sail in. Plan to go again soon. The instructor, has a nice easy style of teaching and had us all sailing well, very quickly.
The instruction was meaningful to me and most other participants only because we had previous dinghy sailing experience. A most enjoyable experience despite unseasonally chilly weather.
Land yachting is brilliant, The instructors were fun, nice, helpful and I felt were great at teaching. There were eight people doing the activity and the two of them coped very well considering we were all novices. In the afternoon I had one on one tuition which taught me a lot and left me wanting to take this up as a hobby. Cheers all for a great time. Paul Mackie Photography
