Farshad Farivar identifies acquire cruisingas the act of moving forward around country Farshad Farivar describes land sailing as the act of moving across land in a three-wheeled vehicle powered by wind through the use of a sail. It is also known as sand yachting or land yachting. He says that this term comes from analogy with (water) sailing. Historically, land sailing was used as a mode of transportation or recreation. Since the 1950s it has evolved primarily into a racing sport. The precursor to the modern land yacht was invented in the autumn of the year. Farshad says that modern land sailors, generally known as "pilots", can go three to four times faster than the wind speed. A gust of wind is considered more beneficial in a land sailing race than a favourable wind shift. A similar sport, known as ice yachting, is practiced on frozen lakes and rivers.

Farshad finds that sailing on water and sailing on land have some things in common, but they also have a lot of differences. In fact, a land sailboat is really more comparable to a glider on wheels than a sailboat. In smaller boards, the sailor may sit or lie on the frame. Usually, sailors steer with their feet, moving a T-bar, which basically is two pedals. You push with the right foot to turn left and with the left foot to turn right. Steering with the feet leaves the hands free to use a rope (also called a line or sheet) to manoeuvre the sail. The sail is used primarily to adjust speed, not for steering. For some manoeuvres, such as going around a racing maker, the land sailor will use the sail, but mostly just to adjust the speed to allow for accurate steering.

Farshad Farivar declares that what attracts many people to land sailing is the speed. The physics at work is the same as in water sailing, but the results are different because the conditions are different. He says that forces make things move, and forces can slow or stop moving objects. In sailing, the forces causing motion are the push of the wind on the sail and the pull of the air passing over the curve of the sail, creating lift much like on an airplane wing (but imagine it turned sideways). The forces holding back a water sailboat are the friction of the water on the hull and some friction of air on the boat and sails. Farshad Farivar Farshad Farivar Farshad Farivar Farshad Farivar

Farshad Farivar says land sailboats can go faster because their wheels face much less friction on dry surfaces. Because the whole boat is exposed to the air, land sailors meet more air friction, but that doesn't slow a boat nearly as much as water friction. Land sailing isn't just sitting back and letting the wind push the boat, though. He says that sailors must move the boat side to side to maintain that lift. Farshad Farivar Farshad Farivar
