The ‘Potty !’




An Introduction to Landyachting – and the “Potty !” mini land-yacht.

Welcome to Land Yachting, the exhilarating sport that harnesses the power of the wind to propel a yacht on wheels over land at invigorating speeds. The British have always excelled at the highly competitive sport of land yacht racing, both at European and International level. There is a national series of race regattas held at clubs around the country which are enjoyed by those competing for a place in the elite British Team, and those who do it just for fun. The British team includes class 3, class 5 and Standard traditional land yachts, kite-powered parakarts, land-boards, and wind-surfer rigged speed-sails. Racing however is not compulsory and the vast majority of those who have discovered the delights of the sport simply enjoy the pleasures of sailing silently on a sandy breezy beach, a grassy field or an open car park or just about any other smooth clear surface.

A brief introduction to the Potty! Minilandyacht.

The Potty ! was designed by three members of the Cefn Sidan Sandyacht Club, who between them have over forty years experience of land sailing. The Potty ! has been designed to pack away and fit into the boot of the smallest car.

When removed, it’s assembled in seconds and ready to go, without the use of any tools or special equipment. The Potty ! is simple to sail by anyone from age 8 to 80 and from 6 to 18 stones. It's at home on sand, tarmac or grass at speeds of up to 35 mph, in  winds of 8 to 30 mph.

Everyone becomes an expert within 10 minutes, no prior experience is needed – and an ear to ear grin is guaranteed!

Our Potty minilandyacht is the perfect way to introduce yourself to the world of landyachting.                                                                                                                            The new and improved Potty is convenient, and takes up very little space to store. When needed, it’s assembled in a few minutes without tools or experience, ready for use by anyone of (almost) any age or size.
