Landsailing events

For years, decades actually, until interrupted by the pandemic, NALSA had published information about official NALSA events, International events and casual get-togethers. We are about to resume that practice.

We will make it clear which events are official NALSA sanctioned events, usually formal racing events, and provide entry forms, schedules, release forms and contact information for those events. If we post international events, they will be sanctioned by FISLY or some national Association or Club which is responsible for making sure that information is accurate and events are safe and well managed.

Although we don’t want anyone to miss out on a fun landsailing gathering, we are a relatively small, volunteer, organization; we can’t possibly check the accuracy, safety or legitimacy of happenings that we list. We will require a contact person be listed and recommend you contact that person to confirm details.

Additionally, as a heads-up to event organizers, be aware that our website, Facebook page and the Landsailing Facebook page are monitored by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and others to regulate unsanctioned events. If you bill your activity as a casual gathering, but charge entry fees, have scheduled races and publish results, expect to have a conflict with the managers of the dry lake or beach where you are gathering. Similarly, if you describe your activity as a formal racing event, but don’t notify the proper authorities for permits etc. you are likely to have problems.

NALSA is not in any way responsible for any casual events listed here or on the Facebook sites, regardless of who the organizers are. We reserve the right to not re publish events that cause problems with officials, site owners or within our community.

As of May 1, 2022, it looks like a world championship in Argentina in 2023 is not going to happen.
It may be replaced with a Latin American championship and/or a promo/mini championship. A future world championship in Argentina is possible if covid, shipping costs and wars in Europe come back under control.

America's Landsailing Cup (ALC) Typically occurs the last full week in March.
North America's premier landsailing event and, for 2022, officially an international event. The ALC includes several days of exciting racing preceded by two days of training /practice. It is also a great time to meet landsailors and see landsailers (aka "dirtboats") from all over the US and often from other countries as well.

This year there will be no indoor activities or organized gatherings that put people in close proximity with others. We will be using covid awareness bracelets to manage participant's interactions. See the Medical/Covid/ Emergency Contact Form PDF for a discussion of how the bracelets work.
