Landsailing events

World Championship ArgentinaFebruary 11-19 2023

Please fill out the linked survey if you plan to participate:

Pandemic note:

In the spirit of promoting the sport of landsailing, NALSA has, for years, published announcements for both NALSA sanctioned events and the various gatherings and get-togethers of landsailing clubs and groups. We expect to resume this practice as soon as we can reasonably do so.

  • As mentioned on the home page, there were no NALSA sanctioned events in 2020.
  • Additionally, all 2021 NALSA sanctioned events are cancelled/postponed.
  • The NALSA board will meet later this year to discuss options for resuming normally-scheduled events.
  • Although it seems very likely that small groups of landsailors may show up at a location to camp and sail, possibly near the dates that events have traditionally been scheduled, NALSA will not be publishing information about those casual gatherings until the situation with Covid 19 has improved to the point where normal activities can resume.
  •  NALSA does not have any desire or ability to regulate the behavior of individual landsailors who choose to gather and sail under current conditions.
  • It is the responsibility of each individual to behave responsibly and know the restrictions that apply to the state and locations where they intend to sail or camp. Rules may be different from those in your home town.
  •  Current policy on federal lands says. “on-duty or on-site federal employees, on-site federal contractors, and other individuals in federal buildings and on federal lands should all wear masks, maintain physical distance, and adhere to other public health measures, as provided in CDC guidelines.” Various articles indicate this applies to National Parks and BLM managed locations.

If you are sick or have have been exposed to groups of people who are not practicing reasonable social distancing, please stay home! We can't afford to lose any landsailors!
