A wheeled vehicle moving across land powered by wind by means of a sail, forms part of the sport of land sailing. Known also by the names of sand yachting, land yachting, or occasionally dirtboating, it is managed by the Land and Sandyachting Federation (FISLY) based in Germany. FISLY is responsible for setting rules, managing competitions, and growing the sport worldwide through the increase of membership.
Traditionally land yachting served as a mode of transportation, but since the 1950s it started to emerge as a sport. The modified vehicles typically are light in weight and often have three wheels. Favourite areas for competitions are open sandy terrains near the ocean, salt flats, dry riverbeds, and desert areas. A similar version is ice yachting that features on frozen lakes and rivers.
