There is something for everyone here, both experienced and novice sailers. If you have no sailing experience at all and are just curious check out the picture galleries and videos.

March 2014

Since the event at Playas, NM is no longer happening, we are planning on joining a few sailers on Delamar Dry Lake, which is north of Las Vegas. It sounds like a low key event similar to Playas, and is scheduled to take place over Memorial Day weekend. There is more info on the NALSA Events page.

I've decided to offer a classified ad service for those looking to sell equipment. Check here for details and ads.

Check out the section on Sailing Instructions and Tips. Basic sailing to advanced techniques. Be sure to read all sections.

Ever wondered how to have a campfire, and the ability to cook over it as well? The tub from a washing machine makes a wonderful firepit, and with a few modifications it can be used almost anywhere. We use this setup for all our campfire/cooking needs. Visit cookerwars.com for more info.

New Look

After 15 years, it's time to do a complete update on this site. Although it can be interesting to see how things have progressed over the years, I felt it was time to clean up the site and remove some of the outdated material. While I enjoy working on the site from time to time, it has become unwieldy and difficult to maintain. The goal is to make the site easier to navigate.

Over the years I have updated various sections and let others languish.

One of the sections that has not been updated for many years is the plans for a small landsailer. The design has been modified greatly since the plans were originally posted. After much deliberation I have decided to remove the plans section from the site for the foreseeable future. I am in the process of writing an e-book and working on an instructional video about building the new version. When those are completed information will be posted here.

If you would like to be notified when the ebook is available, Contact Us.

Other sections that have been trimmed are those related to kites and buggies.
