Blokart sailing had been slow to gain momentum in the USA compared to other parts of the world but the tide is starting to turn… with the formation of NABSA and the 2012 world blokart sailing champs being held at Ivanpah Dry lake, just outside of Las Vegas. It should be one hell of an event for 1 design racing. If you overlooked the obvious lack of water, “boats” will be reaching at 40 + knots, 20 + knots up wind, 2 – 3 times the wind speed, racing shoulder to shoulder in fleets of 50 to 100 boats at a time and Las Vegas on the door step… ching ching!!
The karts / boats what ever you want to call them, are easy to set up, sail and are readily available from blokart dealers, or blokart international who can ship anything you want quickly from their Atlanta warehouse. blokart international ltd are looking for new dealers now!
