Murray's Speed Machine

The word land sailing speed record is well out of reach at 202.9 km/h especially without a significant budget to back you up but Murray Turner and Keith Christie(sp?) , Sandgropers Land Yacht Club members, in the simple pursuit of more speed have created this rigid wing yacht. more details soon but its first test run will happen on lake Lefroy in Kambalda in Late October 2011.

Promo Video

A while back i finally edited and uploaded a video to promote Land sailing at Lake Walyungup WA. It is comprised of relatively old footage (around 2003 from memory)  but it should give a good insight into our sport.
I will hopefully be shooting some new HD video this season for an updated clip.

Hi Landsailers! Just watched 'The 2006 Pacific Rim Landsailing Championships' on dvd and I can tell you, its been well worth the wait! It contains excellent coverage of the Pacrim Champs, great sailing clips, interesting interviews, many fond memories of the whole event and much more. Its a must see! I thoroughly recommend this one folks, its fantastic! Megan Cromarty
