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. (From Wikipedia)
A desert near Primm, Nevada, about 40 miles west of Las Vegas, is popular with land sailors.

Hi Eleu, Nice colors and details. The flying sand gives sense of speed of these machines. Best regards

A lot of action and strong colours here. The blue and beige background improves the beauty of this capture.

A really good sense of movement and a colorful display of sails in this action image.

Another fine sport view of the sailors on the dry lake bed with a rugged mountain background.
I will have to check out if rentals are available. I have too many toys to buy a rig.
Thanks for sharing,
