What was it?

Not fast in the eyes of some, but for me it was the fastest recorded speed I have ever knowingly travelled on 3 wheels.

46.4kph - 4 metre sail - 15/20 knot winds - no OBE!!

Could we please have a Land Yacht Area in the Records (as I achieved a PB) 

Sure, however I need info...
IE: All top records are listed, if you wanted to drill down and compare them you could filter by...???
Sail size? Anything else?

But.... You took some great shots of the sand and your own feet. Mez looked sharp and confident during her runs. Shame about the video. We will just have to do it again.

That's great mez 

A pb is what it is

Something to be proud of.

I had 2hours at the beach today 20 mph on shore

- 4 degrees lots of standing water

But laughing all the way until I hit a patch of water that was 2 ft deep , that wiped the smile for a short while

Keep up the good work mez , I think I now enjoy land yachting more than kiteing especially on UK beaches ☺

You should head over to the Isle of Wight (if you get a chance) There is a Land Yacht group (Been there years as my Mum was born there and always wanted a go) Im from the south and the beaches are not that much cop for buggying but the widget has some good sandy beaches to try.

Sounds good mez.

My beaches aren't great but you make do with what you have

Adapt and overcome !

I am lucky that I go to fuerteventura a few times a year

Sotovento beach were they hold the world windsurfing and kite surfing championships is fantastic and you can hire blowkarts.

Its also an average of 30 degrees Mmmmm nice 😀
