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 starts on Saturday February 28th and continues on Sunday March 1st, weather permitting.

“We will have four classes of yachts competing in this round of the British Land Yachting Championships – the weather forecast looks good,” organiser Martyn Hayle told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The action will get underway from around 10.30am on both days. During ideal conditions, the yachts speed across the sand at up to 60mph, making quite a spectacle for spectators.
