Land sailing, also known as sand yachting or land yachting, is the act of moving across land in a three-wheeled vehicle powered by wind through the use of a sail. The term comes from analogy with (water) sailing. Historically, land sailing was used as a mode of transportation or recreation. Since the 1950s it has evolved primarily into a racing sport.

Good morning, Eleu,
it's probably was a funny adventure. At least it looks very attractive for me. Good expression of the desert race. Clever composition, excellent colors! TFS!
Have a nice Sunday!

A well working composition of these sailors. You have picked one as the main target while these a few more in the background. Backlight shows nicely on the sails. That terrain looks perfectly flat and surely fits well on such hobby.

This looks like great fun. I like the composition with the "yachts" well spread out and the view of the mountains in the background. It's great to have one of the competitors so close to us, for the information it provides us and for the depth in the picture. This raises two questions: Were you standing at the edge of the "race course" or did you have others coming behind you? And what speed could they reach?

A very interesting sport! I have seen something similar on the large beaches in Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, but they had parachutes in stead of sails. This looks very pleasant and environment friendly. A very fine picture with many strong colours!

Good action scene of the newer sport of land sailing.
The deserts dry lake beds are ideal for this, and I wonder where this spot is?
Being a sailor and windsurfer, I would like to someday try land sailing.
Thanks for sharing,

Bravo Eleu, through that picture you present an activity possible on a beach with a lot of wind available, the elements are well placed as only one sail hides the other ones, regards

Beautiful shot ! I like how they're placed in the picture, like a little and inoffensive squadron. Great light, its reflection on the sand makes the picture very luminous.
