About sailing on land

Sailing on land has actually been around since the 1900s. However up until today, it remains an 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 car functions as a typical 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!
