Redcar Land Sailing

Racing began today on the first day of the Redcar Land Sailing regatta on Coatham Beach.

Land sailing events held on the beach at Redcar date back as far as 1909 and the sport maintains a strong following. Enthusiasts travel from all over the country to compete in the four classes of land yachts, the Minis, Class 3, Class 5 and Standart yachts and the wide expanse of Coatham Beach is considered to be one of the best land sailing venues in the country.

Here’s a few from the day…
