About sailing on land
Did you know that Mallorca is an accessible sports paradise? Sailing on land is not the only thing you can do on this idyllic island. You can also go golfing, sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, and water skiing. Therefore, the island is very beloved by the disabled visitor. But let us focus on sailing on land for now. Now, what is this mysterious sport no one ever talks about? It has actually been around since the 1900′, but it still remains a rather unknown sport. How does it work? You basically move across the land in a wheeled vehicle that is powered by wind through the use of a sail. The vehicle functions as a normal sailboat but you have to lie down or sit to steer the boat. You operate it with pedals or hand levers. Ready? Set. Sail away!
