Feeling the need for speed, landsailors will gather during the last week in March 2013, on Ivanpah Dry Lake to sail in the premier American landsailing regatta known as AMERICA’S LANDSAILING CUP.  80 + competitors will race in fleets ranging from Miniclass yachts upward to International Class II yachts. Races will be held daily (wind permitting) and spectators are welcome. Watching (or participating) in racing where yachts regularly round leeward marks at 60 mph, is amazing!

Ivanpah dry lake, off I-15 at the California-Nevada state line, a few miles from Las Vegas, is arguably the fastest sailing surface on the planet, home to several past records and the current sail-powered speed record of just over 126 mph.  In some ways, it is the speed of normal landsailers that is more remarkable. In daily course racing the smallest racers will hit close to 50 mph while the bigger boats will be cruising closer to 100 mph.

Visit the event, check out the landsailers, meet the sailors and watch a few races. It’s quite an experience. After racing ends (daily) there’s usually some time to catch a ride or try out one of the yachts. Later, walk about the campsites and visit some friendly sailors, parties and campfires.

Info can be found at NALSA.org. See the events calender for dates and directions to Ivanpah Dry Lake and hotel accommodations  in Primm, Nevada. We hope to see you on the dirt!
