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.
