A rare opportunity to experience southern Nevada's finest land sailing venues, using the industry's safest, high-performance land yachts from Omega Land Sailing. All lessons (including the required refresher course) are included and within minutes, you'll be sailing free to enjoy the comfortable weather, exhilarating desert breezes, and all the amenities. Each location is unique and exciting, and you'll get to try different land yachts and sail sizes to maximize the fun. The Desert Wind Gods of southern Nevada await your arrival!
Day 1 ♦ Las Vegas, NV Be ready to go by 10:30 AM (pick-up available from any Strip area hotel) for a scenic drive south of the city to Ivanpah Dry Lake, a locals favorite. The plays's colors dramatically contrast against its mountainous backdrop. A solar farm and rugged peaks rise up from the valley floor on both sides lake bed - handy for directional orientation without the need for technology.
You’ll be outfitted with your own land yacht and given a brief lesson on how to read the wind, find the points of sail, and master the “Figure 8” loop course. Soon you'll be blasting across the lake bed alongside your fellow sailors. Enjoy thrilling acceleration in the fun desert winds as you prepare a casual mini regatta this afternoon - will you win First Place bragging rights? Stay overnight in Las Vegas at the Red Rock Resort. Meals included: L, D
Day 2 ♦ Beatty, NV It's on to the next amazing valley north from Las Vegas for a day of land sailing and exciting discovery. Beatty's Playa is highly characterized - zip & zoom across its silky smooth surface featuring a natural obstacle course! Later, test your skills at formation land sailing - how long can you and your partner maintain the same speed and heading for a picture-perfect reach across the lake bed? It sounds easy, but it requires a very steady hand and major finesse! Stay overnight in Beatty at Motel 6. Meals included: ALL
Days 3 and 4 ♦ Tonopah, NV Welcome to the Nye County Neverlands - home to two amazing land sailing playas featuring miles of fast, top quality surfaces. The surrounding countryside is magnificent and grand, perfect for capturing dramatic photos and videos of the experience. Later, mix it up with a land sailing treasure hunt - steer your land yacht towards the playa's bays and inlets while keeping an eye out for brightly colored objects. Each object is worth a certain number of points. Collect as many as you can find then sail back to base to reveal their point values ..The values are ever the same.. Will you be the winning sailor with the most points? Stay two nights at the Best Western in Tonopah. After dinner, put on a jacket for a stroll through its historic downtown. Enjoy Tonopah's incredible stargazing opportunities as well. Meals included: ALL
Day 5 ♦ Farewell Regatta After breakfast, head south for one more land sailing regatta before arriving back in Las Vegas by 4:00 PM at the latest. Your guide will drive you to any Strip area hotel or McCarran Airport if you have a flight this evening. Return home with amazing memories of land sailing in southern Nevada's magnificent outback.
