Join Andy, an enthusiastic land yachter and instructor with over 16 years experience and his team, to learn the brilliant sport of sand or land yachting. Take part in this fun based experience over a couple of hours, and glide over the long sandy beach of Greatstone in Kent. The simple three wheeled vehicles with their single tall pole and sail really are as much fun to ride across the sand with as they look. With a little expert help and guidance, nerves soon disappear and you'll be surprised at just how quickly you pick things up. In no time, lovers of a fast adrenaline rush can choose to fly on just two wheels, whereas other can simply enjoy running their kite buggie up and down the beach at their own pace, gulping in fresh seaside air.
