10:30 AM ♦ Good morning, let's go! Depart Caesar's Palace Hotel in Las Vegas at 10:30 AM. Very scenic shuttle ride through the mountains to a huge land sailing playa where abundant desert breezes are channeled into the Pahrump Valley microclimate. Surrounded by rugged mountain peaks, the playa offers a superior surface. After a quick set-up and safety orientation, you'll see how to master your gear to harness the wind. Most people get the full hang of it in 10 minutes. Sail fast or sail slow, and as far and wide as you want - it's your time to be free.
At your leisure ♦ Sail.. have lunch.. up to you.. Have some fun exploring the playa in casual sailing style, then prepare for this afternoon's land sailing regatta - a flagged loop course to test your new land sailing skills!
2:30 PM ♦ Race time! A prize will be awarded to the winner - "best out of three heats wins". The best setting for action pictures and video to make friends & family back home turn green with envy.
3:00-3:30 PM ♦ Pack up.. get on the road.. Scenic shuttle back over the mountains to Las Vegas - target arrival time is 4:30 PM (please allow up to 30 mins delay for traffic).
4:30-5:00 PM ♦ Hotel drop-off You will be returned to your own hotel in Las Vegas (on/near Strip only). What a great day it was!
