British Land Yachting Championships in Brean this weekend

Dozens of the UK's leading sand yachting enthusiasts will be in action on Brean beach this weekend, competing in the British Land Yachting Championships.

The two-day event is being organised by Brean Land Yacht Club and begins on Saturday March 3rd and continues on Sunday, weather permitting.

"We are hoping for a breezy weekend and are expecting over 30 pilots from across the country to take part in this third round of the British Land Yachting Championships," organiser Martyn Hayle told

Saturday's action gets underway at 10.30am and Sunday's racing will begin from 10am.

During ideal conditions, the yachts speed across the sand at up to 60mph, making quite a spectacle
