Extractions: Landsailing is the sport of moving over sand and land, using a kart carrying a sail for wind propulsion. The Aruban plains are the perfect spot for this way of sailing! The wind-driven kart is light and comparatively small and is mounted on 3 wheels. The front wheel is attached to a system that steers the kart. You have to steer with your legs! Controlling the kart also requires control over the sail. It is almost comparable to the skills needed for sailing a normal (though easy-going) water boat. The sail is controlled using a rope, which is pulled to "sheet in" and loosened for "sheeting out". The harder one pulls the rope, the faster one goes. Aruba-visitors who tempted the wind for the first time on a kart like this, can tell you that the thrill comes just as fast as the skill! Beginners can easily sail themselves into a more experienced level within only one session! Downwind or upwind sailing, doing a slalom course, or even a 360 degree turn are among the options. Anyone between 12 and 88 can learn to landsail. Aruba Active Vacations gives you the opportunity to try this exciting sport in Aruba, providing the necessary instruction, landsailing equipment and safety gear.
Extractions: The is a recreational cart (not designed for competition) with three wheels and you use your feet to steer. It is a traditional landsailor except for the body which is molded fiberglass. The will also be an ice sailor. With the inflatable tire option, it can be sailed on soft surfaces such as wet sand or loose or soft dirt. The has a total weight of fifty pounds. It is designed for the active 13-year-old as well as the senior citizen. Even for non-sailors, the techniques are quick and easy to learn. The is propelled by a single, small but optimum sail of approximately 30 square feet intended for winds 10 to 25 m.p.h. The steering bar on the front wheel assembly can be extended or retracted to fit the user. Like a sailboat, when sailing the the user leans from side to side keeping the weight on the wind-ward side of the cart (the side from which the wind is blowing) therefore keeping the unit upright. However, the wide rear axles (five feet from wheel to wheel) gives the its basic stability. The unit can be sailed at speeds of up to 30 m.p.h. Braking is accomplished with a hand grip mounted on the body much like a bicycle which when applied. Like sail boats, speed can be reduced by releasing the sail and letting the air spill from its surface reducing the stopping distance and allowing the brake to be more effective.
Extractions: Landsailing crafts can reach 2 to 3 times the speed of the accompanying wind. Under normal wind conditions, landsailors may reach even 35 mph. Landsailing on Aruba is exciting... your ultimate fun in the sun. Aruba Active Vacations is the only company which provides landsailing on Aruba. Landsailing is quite easy to learn. OK, every sport were you move your body from point A to point B involves a certain risk. As in all sports, your head is the best safety equipment you have....use it. During the photo shoot we went out with a couple of buddies and got a bit carried away. We did not use our safety equipment. Shame on us. When we take you out we provide safety goggles, helmets, gloves, knee and elbow pads.

In the distance we can see the administration building where, in 1938, a triumphant Howard Hughes and his crew emerged from the cockpit of his plane after setting a new around-the-world flying record of 3 days, 19 hours, 17 minutes. One-eyed Wiley Post took off from the same concrete in the Winnie Mae to become the first pilot to fly solo around the world in 1933. Nazi planes also flew out of here setting travel time records to Berlin in the late '30s. U.S. Navy patrol planes stationed here a few years later went on sorties to hunt U-boats in World War II. Amelia Earhart and her Electra were here in 1937 before they both vanished later that same year. In 1938, "Wrong Way" Corrigan left this airstrip and "accidentally" landed in Dublin, Ireland, after being denied permission to go because of his plane's poor shape. Now, the only signs of life here at historic Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, N.Y., are the clatter of sanitation trucks echoing off the few remaining hangars, the occasional hum of a police helicopter flying training exercises, and a man in a big black truck who roadtripped down from Rhode Island to show us his idea of excitement in a bag.

This road ends at a 7500 ft. peak overlooking a majestic panoramic view of the High Desert below. Approximately 20 miles to the north, as the crow flies, lay the El Mirage dry lakebed. From our vantage point, we can soak in the massive expansions of this desert depression. The powdery, white, alkaline soil outlines the contours of this ancient lakebed. Many people are familiar with El Mirage from the countless TV commercials and music videos that have been filmed there. The moonscape is a dramatic backdrop for nearly any photographic event, but this vast lakebed is far more than a visual curiosity. For many people in Southern California, it is recreational ground zero. Dirt bikes, ATC's, hot-rods, and of course, land-sailors have made this their secondary home, but of all the activities on El Mirage, none is quite as exciting as land sailing. With El Mirage's vast, nearly endless terrain and like-clockwork prevailing winds, the lake attracts sailors from, literally, all around the world.
48° North - Land Sailing The wind was its usual teasing self as we waited for it to pick up enough to test sail the land yachts from Playaboule. We d seen pictures of ice boats http://www.48north.com/jul2001/landsailing.htm
Extractions: The wind was its usual teasing self as we waited for it to pick up enough to test sail the "land yachts" from Playaboule. We'd seen pictures of ice boats rocketing across frozen lakes, and their cousins with wheels careening across desert sands and ocean beaches, so we were anxious to give them a try. Finally the wind picked up enough for my 100 pound son, Erik to jump into the blue, streamlined Club model. With minimal coaching by Bede Kortegast, Playaboule's representative, he was off, sailing around the tarmac at Sand Point with increasing speed. The wind continued to build and when Erik came out of a turn on two wheels I knew there was enough wind to move even my considerable bulk. Actually the wind was only about eight knots, but it was plenty to get a feel of what these machines can really do. Pretty soon we blasting all over the place, with speeds in the gusts that made our eyes widen almost as much as our smiles. For a "water" sailor, the speeds these vehicles reach with comparably little wind is astounding. Recreational models do about two to three times the wind, while more high speed models can go five or six times the windspeed. In poking around the net I read about one that did 105 m.p.h. in 18 m.p.h. of wind! We didn't get near that, nor did we want to. Going in the high teens to mid-twenties was plenty fast, and seems even faster when you're only a few inches off the ground. Trimming the sails is quite easy. The sails are like windsurfer or Hobie Cats sails, made for faster speeds. Because of your ground speed compared to the actual windspeed, your apparent wind comes way forward so you're basically close reaching or relatively close hauled most of the time. This makes life pretty easyyou just pull it in and go.
