Highlights of this tour
- Accessible land sailing
- Accessibility assistance
- Theoretical and practical lessons
Are you ready for some fun on three wheels? Then accessible sailing on land is perfect for you! Firstly, you get a lesson to learn a bit about the sport and how everything works. This lesson consists of two parts. The first is the theoretical part where the necessary steps are explained. The second part is practical. You will learn to handle the sheet, determine where the wind comes from, and take the rudder to control the direction.
The participant is accompanied at all times by a supervisor.
Before starting, there will be a form, and you will have to pass a simple test to assure there are no impediments.
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!
