Land yachting on Brean beach

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

The two-day National Land Yacht Regatta, hosted by Brean Land Yacht Club, started on Saturday November 3rd and continued on Sunday Novenber 4th.

The land yachts were powered along the beach at speeds of up to 55mph by brisk onshore winds during the weekend.

Alan Scantlebury of Brean Land Yacht Club told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We had over 25 racers from right across Britain taking part, with three different classes of land yachts racing the length of the beach. It’s always quite a spectacle to watch.”
