Can you beat the record Try www.ciconline.org/windward Below was copied from "Fox recaps" on the Internet: The Nautical Net A free real-world science lesson arrives on middle-schoolers' computer screens through Windward (www.ciconline.org/windward), a sailing game that gives players the chance to outsmart the weather. Actually, any inquisitive visitor with a broadband Internet connection and the Macromedia Flash 7.0 plug-in will appreciate the high-seas adventure developed by Cable in the Classroom with help from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Discovery Education and the Weather Channel. The game tests decision-making skills as the player virtually navigates a sailboat around the globe while trying to beat the world record of 71 days, achieved on May 3 by Dame Ellen MacArthur from Great Britain.

Extractions: Jump to: navigation search Land sailing on the beaches of Quend, bay of Somme, France Land sailing is motion across land in a wheeled vehicle powered by wind through the use of a sail . The term comes from analogy with (water) sailing . It has a variety of names in addition to land sailing, Most commonly Sand Yachting or Land Yachting. A vehicle used in land sailing is often called a land yacht . Historically, land sailing has been used by some cultures as a mode of transportation ; in modern times, land sailing is primarily a sport and has been practiced as such mainly since the 1950s. Modern land sailors, generally referred to as "Pilots" can go three to four times than the wind speed. A gust of wind is considered more beneficial in a land sailing race than a favorable windshift. Land sailing works best in windy, flat areas - taking place mainly on beaches, air fields, and dry lakebeds (playas) in desert regions. Land yachts are three wheeled vehicles which work mainly like usual water boats in the way they are sailed, except they are steered by pedals or hand levers. They are sailed from a lying down position. A Belgian Class 3 competition land yacht in full action Excluding Ice yachting , there are a number of basic types, or "classes" of Sand or Land Yacht. Because of the very different nature of each class, they compete separately in races.

Tuesday, 29th January 2008 by Rob Although it appears to be one of the scariest sports in the modern world, land sailing (or land yachting ) has apparently caught on in a big way on this beach in Malo Les Bains , near Dunkirk, France. The premise is essentially the same as water sailing - except there are wheels, speeds of up to 70mph, and a harder surface to fall on! Participants sit or lie in a kayak shaped hull, and use pedals or levers to control the sail. Ironically, right next to the water appears to be the best place to do this! There are multiple size classes, with the most powerful being Class 2 (which boast 8 metre sails), progressively getting smaller and less powerful. Also hoping to take advantage of the favourable wind conditions are some kite buggies . These are similar to land yachts, but using a power-kite to propel you along the ground, instead of a sail, and can also reach speeds of 70mph.

These pages are designed to introduce you to the world of Land Sailing. Land sailing is one of the fastest growing sports. It is most easily thought of as wind powered go-karting, combining the speed of racing carts with the zen like feel of sailing. New designs have allowed it to migrate from it's traditional home in the desert and move into more urban areas. The new generation of land sailers is less expensive, easier to transport and are small and flexible enough to run in smaller areas and a variety of surfaces.

Extractions: Although his home town, Friona, Tex., is miles from any large body of water, Ray Landrum still goes sailing whenever he wants, but in a dehydrated fashion. He sails along the highway in a three-wheeled motorless vehicle called a Windmobile, which was built to his design by a local mechanic. In a brisk crosswind, the dryland sailer has hit 60 miles an hour. In the Windmobile, Landrum used the front axle, steering gear, brakes and three wheels from a 1934 Chevrolet sedan. The chassis consists of 1-1/2-inch pipe welded in a triangle. Three oil drums, welded into a long cylinder, form the body. Two cotton sails, both hoisted on one mast, propel the vehicle. A second mast, mounted between the two single seats, serves as a brace for the mainmast. The steering wheel is linked to the single wheel in the rear.

Extractions: The term land sailing refers to an extreme sport in which sails drag a boat-like vehicle across land, normally dried out lakes, beaches or fields in flat areas. The land sailing community is rather related with the one doing ice sailing rather than sailors like myself, who prefer their vessel on simple water. The vessels used by land sailors are normally called land sailer, land yacht, sand boat or clearly the coolest dirt boat . It is essentially a small boat with wheels and uses sails that are very similar to the ones in classic sailing or windsurfing. Today, the sport is very popular in the coastal areas of the US , in the Midwest and deserts of the Southwest. It works best in dry lakebeds or very flat areas, although some of the more hardcore land-sailors prefer challenging landscapes such as sand dunes. Urban land sailing is also done on empty parking lots, although this normally requires small, flexible dirt boats. In Europe, centers of the scene are in northern Germany , the United Kingdom and France Poland has a growing community of land sailors, too.

Help Title: LAND SAILING TRAILER Document Type and Number: United States Patent 3779573 Link to this page: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/3779573.html Abstract: Land sailing trailers having cradle means for supporting a hull of a sailboat. The cradle means is transversely rotatable about a longitudinally axis of rotation, and tension spring means limits rotation of the cradle means. Wheels support the trailers for traveling on land and one wheel is manually adjustable to steer the trailer. Ski skates are secured to the wheels when the trailer is used on snow or ice, and a trailer hitch forms a part of the trailer to permit transporting of the trailer by a powered vehicle, such as an automobile.
