YOUR AMSTERDAM GETAWAY!
Landyachting and a lot more Fun!
JUST IN AMSTERDAM!
You feel like “blokarting” in Amsterdam? Good news! You came to exactly the right place! Okay, actually we don’t use Landyachts made by Blokart, we use a bit nicer ones we think. Therefore we prefer to use the terms land- or sandsailing. But as we are conveniently located in the city, we prefer to use the word landsailing.
You’re more then welcome to come sail with us both individually as in groups. For groups, like bachelor parties, a friends day out, or business events we offer a lot more fun activities besides landsailing. We also have a nice restaurant on location, so we are able to offer you a complete day out, full of action and with great food and drinks.
Obviously you want to throw the coolest b-day party EVER! For the most original and exciting parties for kids from 8 years and up, your in the right place. Landsailing, archery tag, bouldering or maybe even a combination. All that action is bound to give you an appetite, so of course you can end your party with a kids menu at restaurant KAAP.
Looking for a healthy dose of action for a bachelors or group outing? Then you’ll find more then enough to keep you entertained at the cape. Challenge your mates with a round on the SUP or archery tag! Or see who has the best landsailing skills. Afterwards you can recharge with a nice drink and exchange experiences at the bar.
Want to break your daily routine, or gather inspiration and create new stories together? Especially for businesses we have plenty of opportunities. You can combine a meeting with activities, lunch, diner or even an amazing party. On our business page you’ll find some inspiring examples.

About Wind 'N Wheels
We started Wind ’n Wheels because we simple love landsailing. When the financial crisis hit, the municipality of Amsterdam wrote out a competition. Whoever had the best, most original idea with most added value to the city was allowed to start their business on that bit of land, that was foreseen not to be used otherwise for the coming ten year. So with our idea to make landsailing more easily accessible by bringing it to the city we where able to start Wind ’n Wheels.
Over the years a lot has changed. Our original location is now being developed and have since then moved the whole venue to our current location, which we decided to call Cape East. There is a fresh new restaurant on our terrain called KAAP and we have a lot more activities in store for you.
WHAT GUESTS SAY:
For the majority of our activities, no special attire is required. Do keep in mind we are outside mostly. SO dress comfortable nothing to fancy because when playing outside there’s always the chance of getting dirty.
Especially for the landsailing we recommend closed shoes. In the colder months of the year we recommend bringing a pair of gloves for the sailing.
If your participating in the SUP, obviously bring some swimwear, a towel and a warm sweater. There’s always a possibility you might fall in.
We provide you with helmet, face protection and lifejackets where required. If it is a bit rainy we have overals available
Our place is basically a massive open terrain, suitable for the most diverse events. There’s of course plenty of space to race around in a blokart.
We have multiple heated indoor spaces, and toilets, that are multifunctional. Unfortunately we do not have any warm shower facilities.
On our terrain we also have a restaurant KAAP AMSTERDAM conveniently located. They shall attend to you f&b wishes.
