Sand yachting, or land sailing, is a sport that consists of driving a three- or four-wheeled vehicle powered by a sail, on beaches or stretches of flat land. It is a sport that combines the finesse of sailing with the excitement of motor racing, offering a unique experience of speed at ground level, driven by the wind.


**The Asnelles Framework**

Asnelles and Gold Beach, where the championship will be held, offer a spectacular setting for this competition. These beaches, steeped in history, particularly in connection with the Normandy landings, offer ideal conditions for sand yachting: vast stretches of sand and regular winds. It is a place where the natural beauty of Normandy blends with history, creating an unforgettable backdrop for competitions.


**Participants and Spectators**

The event attracts top competitors from all over the world, each bringing their own techniques, experience and passion for the sport. For the spectators, it will be a unique opportunity to see up close the intensity of the competition and the mastery of the drivers.
