Would you like to try yourself in this new and somewhat amusing sporting activity? Imagine that you are speeding with the set sails along the sandy shore. This is the main gimmick of land sailing. You are in a wheeled vehicle, powered by the wind force – the result reminds of a kart with a sail.
At first sight it seems that such a vehicle is quite easy to handle. But actually you can’t do without basic skills and expertise, as in this sport you need to be knowledgeable in the nuances of the wind strength, direction and other details. Yet, if you are experienced in sailing and kitesurfing, you will grasp the essence of land sailing literally in minutes.
This attraction requires certain weather conditions – the wind speed is to be no less than 14 knots, whereas safety requires it to be not higher than 25 knots. Any volunteer over 8 years old can try himself or herself in land sailing. Land sailing is often organized in guided tours on Sir Bani Yas Island and in the Liwa desert.
Prices: the cost of land sailing is on average AED 280 per hour.
