Take control of the machine to offer the greatest fun you can have on three wheels. Known as a kite buggy, sand yacht or land yacht, whichever name you use for this single sail vehicle is likely to see you do so with a big grin, as you ride up and down the flat beach in Greatstone, Romney Sands. The beach is a perfect base for this unusual sport, suitable for all ages, and beginners as well as advanced thrill seekers. Begin with a welcome and safety briefing from Andy, covering the basic techniques necessary to manage the vehicle. In no time and with just a little help of a highly qualified and passionate instructor, manoeuvre the land yacht and get moving. Show what you've got over the course of two breathtaking hours on the beach. Here you go!
