Blokarting, land- or sandsailing, all different words for basically the same game. Piloting a landyacht is a mesmerising experience, the speed acceleration and turns could be compared to a go-kart. The main difference being, that all we need is a bit of wind and wagon with three wheels and a sail. Sailing experience isn’t necessary. We build up our clinics step by step, so that everyone can experience this Wonderful sport in a safe and fun way. Of course we are dependant on the wind to be able to sail. We are able to ride from approximately 3 til 6 Beaufort (between 8 and 25 knots of wind for the sailors). We always adjust the size of sail to the circumstances that day so you can get the most out of your experience. In case of a little rain we have overalls available. If the weather does not permit us to sail for some reason we try to look for an alternative activity.
You can find us on the IJdijk nr 10 in Amsterdam, or even easier just search for Wind ’n Wheels in google maps. Also see contact page.
To be able to do a spot of langachting a little space is required. Therefore we have a wonderful large terrain to our disposal on one of the windiest locations of Amsterdam. You can host the most diverse events at our location.
Wind ’n wheels is actually a bit of a run out of control joke by origin. We won the use of a massive plot of land by winning a competition from the city of Amsterdam, during the financial crisis around 2010. A couple of years back we moved to our current location and decided to name it Cape east. We offer free parking which obviously is super practical if you have a lot of guests coming form out of town. Of course it is also super easy to get to us by bike or public transport. Tram 16 stops only a 5 min walk away and swiftly gets you from and to Amsterdam CS.
On our location you also find restaurant KAAP. This original venue will take care of all your wishes regarding food and beverages.
