People have been developing land yachting sports for centuries, and it has been available in various forms. In Scotland, one may experience its newest form—sand yachting. The sails are set on the three-wheeled vehicles and powered by the wind as your "boat" glides over the land—anyone suffering from a phobia of water will definitely appreciate such an alternative to traditional sailing.
