Meet "Lance" - the Area 51 Alien Ambassador who always welcomes photographs with guests! A box lunch and refreshments will be served at the playa. This evening, shuttle to the Aliante hotel casino resort in North Las Vegas - your home for two nights.

Its elevation offers very comfortable temperatures and a superior surface. Sail the afternoon away in the Top Secret breezes! Go fast or go slow, and go as far and wide as you want - it's your time to be free! It's a lot of fun exploring this highly characterized playa in preparation for this afternoon's regatta to test your new land sailing skills. You might win a prize! A box lunch and refreshments will be served, and photo and video capture assistance will be available.
Thursday ♦ Farewell Area 51 land sailing regatta You'll return to Area 51 (East) after breakfast for one more land sailing regatta before heading back to Las Vegas.
