Ever wondered what it was like to sail a sandyacht and experience the excitement of a wheeled sport without any engine or pedals ?
Sandyachting, sailing a wheeled vehicle on the beach and Kite powered buggies known as Kite Buggy, thats how we roll.
EVENT DATES 2017 -2018: I wish all our members and new members fair winds, great sailing and lots of fun during the coming season.
