While in St. Andrews we tried our hand in land yachting. Jamie McKenzie is a hoot. Laid back and always smiling, even when you do something like lean back and topple your sail. We got sand everywhere and wet through and through, but had the best time on the beach. I felt Jamie loves what he does and it is... More

I was with the Blown Away team for an afternoon of land yachting on the beautiful West Sands beach up in St Andrews. After managing to arrive late with the wind dropping I was a reluctant client, sceptical that there would be enough wind but Guy and Jamie soon had me strapped in to my land yacht and had me...

Spent a great morning land yachting with the whole family. 2 adults and 4 kids aged from 13 to 7 years. Tricky to start with but lots of fun and the Instructors were a good laugh too.

The sand yachting and beach bride olympics for my daughters hen party at the weekend was brilliant! Jamie and Guy were great fun and made everyone feel so welcome even the hens who weren't taking part. Great banter, great mocktails and cup-cakes too! Would highly recommend it!

We booked Blown Away for my sister's hen do on Saturday 3rd September 2016. Everyone had an blast with Guy and Jamie providing the banter for our Beach Bride Olympics. They have a couple of lovely, friendly dogs who wanted to take part too. The activities were fun and not too physically demanding. In fact they were just perfect for... More

Last minute booking with Blown Away for our son's 14th birthday. The weather was gloriously sunny and although we had to wait till the wind picked up in the afternoon it was well worth waiting for. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed sailing on sand, feeling the wind catch the sail allowing the land yacht to pick up speed, just great!... More

We booked this land yatching experience with little knowledge of what to expect. Not only was the yatching incredibly fun for all ages (7-69), the setting was beyond compare. Sailing with the mighty winds along the "Chariots of Fire" shore made for fabulous pictures & amazing memories. The wonderful, teasing young men who instructed us added much to the fun... More

We had an excellent afternoon with family from 70 down to 5. The guys were terrific. Everyone was shown individually and they kept an eagle eye on each of us. They were especially good with the children. At the end coffee and shortbread were served and they even loaned towels for a swim. A great birthday outing.

My cousin & I had a great experience. The yachts are very strong, well-designed, and user-friendly. The instruction was spot on - simple, yet covered all we needed to know; Guy and Jamie were supportive and encouraging, positive and affirming; they allowed us to find our feet, and also to challenge ourselves; their enthusiasm and energy was catching! So thanks... More
