Video & photos: Brean hosts British Land Yachting Championships

Dozens of the UK's top sand yachting enthusiasts were in action on Brean beach over the weekend for the British Land Yachting Championships.

The two-day National Land Yacht Regatta, organised by Brean Land Yacht Club, started on Saturday and continued on Sunday.

The racers were helped by strong winds throughout the weekend.

Martyn Hale, Brean Land Yacht Club Chairman, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We had a good weekend of racing with 30 racers from across Britain - coming as far afield as Redcar, London and the Lake District to take part."

"We had near-perfect conditions with strong winds powering the land yachts along the beach.

Five different classes of Land yacht raced the length of Brean beach, with the speed of the land yachts reaching in excess of 60mph.
