The strong winds yesterday evaporated the standing water on the racing area, and today the situation improved further. The forcast if for sunny and breezy weather so the lake should dry completely. They will check the lake again tomorrow morning. They have said The Cup will go as previously scheduled. Stay tuned. latest updates Contact: NALSA LANSAILING EVENTS:

Extractions: There are many different types of land sailing - on surf-wax we aim to show you the sailing which happens on beaches. But given that you need a pretty big beach without to many pedestrians, it is not going to be a main stream sport. And you need to have some level of skill before you can take to the beach for fear of colliding with rocks, dogs, people and any other obstacles which appear from nowhere to challenge you. Most people who landsail tend to use a windsurfing type sail and then fashion some kind of board to stand on, or a buggy to sit in. The picture below (we think) shows a board built on the lines of a speedsail it has 2 pairs of wheels, the front set of wheels are on a narrower axle to the back set of wheels, the board is steered by transfering bodyweight.
Landsailing In America Excerpted by permission of the author from the May 12 1998 issue of the AMERICANlandsailing FEDERATION newsletter. landsailing in America. By Nord Embroden. http://www.nalsa.org/landsailing_in_america.htm
Extractions: Landsailing in America By Nord Embroden I remember a non-successful attempt at landsailing in 1956 with a bed sheet for a square sail and a push car. A puff of wind came and my whole rig went over the front. 1958 I installed a dingy sail on a Soap Box Derby car. This car would sail with two kids at dangerous boardwalk speeds. I remember that the torque of the mast would lock up the steering bar during gusts adding more excitement. Nord and his friends were the terrors of the peninsula in Long Beach. and was experimenting with landyacht design. Don and I became friends and worked on many landsailing projects together. Over the years Don designed several beautiful yachts that were very unique. A very early yacht was constructed of tubing and cloth. The yacht could be folded in to a small package and placed in the trunk of the car. His Windbuggy competition was a lightweight space frame of tubing with and extruded aluminum mast and sulky spoked wheels. Later Don designed and built several Windbuggy Juniors, the first yachts designed specifically for children.

Extractions: Landsailing in Colorado is somewhat of a challenge. We do most of our sailing on parking lots, as there are no large dry lake beds around. The local high school has a huge parking lot, a great place to sail; no trees or buildings to block the wind. Click the links below for more specific information.

Extractions: firstname.lastname@example.org Landsailing... Think sailboat...or better yet, high-performance glider, on edge and on wheels...racing along the playa (ground) at three to five times the speed of the wind... just a few inches off the ground...no sound but the wind whistling past your helmet. Starting to get the picture? This is a sport with a solid base of dedicated enthusiasts ( IRCSSA ) and racers who appreciate landsailing because it is easy to learn and challenging to master. It is an inexpensive sport whether you're just beginning or a seasoned racer. Races involve groups ranging from local clubs to international competitors. It's also environmentally friendly! In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has rewarded racers and enthusiasts with special access to dry lakes for competitions. It's an increasingly popular sport that is enjoyed by a diverse range of people. About the designer....
