Alan and his team were great. No experience is necessary as they look after you well. It was great fun.

Speed along and try your hand something different with this exciting morning of Land Yachting for Two.
You may have seen these vehicles zipping around, powered by nothing but the wind and reaching speeds of over 40 mph, and now’s your chance to get into the driving seat and feel the speed for yourself. You’ll get a land yacht each so you’ll both have plenty of time to get to grips with the controls, practising on a course designed to hone your skills before heading out onto the open plain to really get the wind in your sails.
These ultra-modern land yachts can travel three or four times faster than the wind speed, so even on a moderately calm day you should be shooting along hair-raisingly fast mere inches from the ground. An expert tutor will be on hand at all times to ensure you get the most that you can from your land-yacht, so expect an adrenaline-fuelled thrill ride from beginning to end and a sporting experience unlike any other.
Your voucher is valid for 12 months from the date of issue, while government restrictions apply in relation to Covid-19 we are offering free extensions on all experiences so you can take your experience when the time is right.
On arrival at the land yacht centre you’ll be greeted by one of the highly-trained instructors before being given a full safety briefing and starter tuition in the correct handling techniques.
As the yachts have no brakes, your instruction will start with stopping safely before moving on the more advanced steering skills on a special land yacht course. Once you’ve mastered the basics you’ll head out to find out what these amazing vehicles are capable of, and with a land yacht each to drive you can easily find out which one of you has done the best job of mastering the skills.
