Land Sailing/ Winter Too!
Secrets Never Shared
MIA Trike-a-Sail™ Pantera - RC Land Yacht Radio Control Land Sailer Model
Mama Mia, this is fashion from fiberglass and a sailboard sail. Tires are a bit narrow for me. I use wide tires in back a small width and diameter in the front for easier steering. This has a cockpit that you crawl into. Look close and you will see the driver's helmet and face guard position. Always wear a helmet and gloves...ALWAYS.
Iceboat Tech That Never Caught On: Front-Seater Junior Iceboat - iceboat.org
Here are some plans. Move mast forward. Seat back. Replace ski blades with wheels. I would use steel or aluminum tube either round or box. Round will have less wind resistance. Remember sail forward. Fiberglass or carbon fiber masts are the best to use. Aluminum bend when you crash.
10ft gaff stern steerer Iceboat
This is a modified DN ice boat without the cockpit. Now think of this design and add tires. See the wide wheelbase in the back? That means stability. You can buy a sailboard sail. The seat would need modified to a full back. You'll need a seatbelt too! I would use a bicycle front fork design and have single handed steering. If you really this about this you can bolt it together. Have fun.
Nouveaux sports de glisse
NOPE, nope, nope, never. This is for very young fit people. A big gust of wind might fling you off at speed then again it might dislocate your shoulder in the process. It sure looks like fun though. Beware big parking lots causes skinned everything! I can feel the road rash.
Here is a bear bones frame. This needs a pan or skid plate if you wish. This pan would extend to the mast. A splatter shield for the front wheel. The yellow mast holder is so the mast can turn. I will put a link to my website on land sailing. This something your whole family can do. You can organize local races. Or just great fun.
Car Racing Seats | Tillett Racing Seats
I found the mess seats to be a bit more comfortable. Depending on your tires and terrain. The balloon tires have a tendency to bounce. The diameter of the tire also dictates your frame height off the ground. The land sailing carts go 3 times the speed of the wind.
Introducing the whike: Britain's first sailing BICYCLE gets green light to hit the road
Ok for those of you that think this is for kids only, the land speed record help by some crazy Brits is 211 MPH, oh yeah. I love these things. I race sailboats for years. But land sailing is a whole new sport that has been around since the mid 1800's. Some guy used a wagon with a mast and makeshift sail. Big open areas or large (empty) parking lots. Farmers fields, get permission. Mine has a carbon fiber mast. My sail came from a sailboard. It is a handful and most I am on two wheels.
