Video: British Land Yachting Championships held on Brean beach

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

The two-day event was organised by Brean Land Yacht Club and was held on both Saturday and Sunday.

"We had a great day on Saturday, with plenty of wind meaning we could go ahead with seven hours of glorious racing," organiser Martyn Hayle told

"But the calmer conditions on Sunday were more challenging and fewer races were able to go ahead."

During ideal conditions, the yachts speed across the sands at up to 60mph.
