Land Sailing

Land sailing is a sport that some historians trace back to ancient Egypt, although nowadays it can be seen in places such as New Zealand and Brazil, and Europe (where it is called sand sailing). The small sailboat skims along sandy beaches at speeds of up to 60 miles an hour with a sail that is used to increase the speed. Racing these crafts is extremely popular, as theyêre fast, green and you donêt even need to be near water to do it - making races in deserts such as Southern California and Alice Springs in Australia possible..
