On March 25th, 2011, Blokart sailors will come to Primm, Nevada from all over the world to sail in the North American Blokart Sailing Championship.

A Blokart is a 65 pound, three-wheeled, sail powered kart invented and designed by Paul Beckett from New Zealand.  You can sail with 2, 3, 4, or 5.5 meter sails at speeds of up to 50 + MPH.  Its ingenious design lends itself to being broken down and placed in a bag that can be put in the trunk of a small car.  With simple assembly requiring no hand tools, you can be sailing within minutes of arriving at your destination.  I have carried my Blokart on commercial airline flights with a minimum heavy bag allowance.  Because I live in Michigan, I have an ice blade kit for my kart, which allows me to sail on ice.  I have a sailboat, but I am limited to summer sailing in Michigan.  With my Blokart, I can sail year-round.
