Dunkirk, Gravelines, les Hemmes de Marck, Wimereux, Boulogne-sur-Mer, Hardelot, Camiers, Stella-Plage, and Berck-sur-Mer (the famous ‘Les Drakkars’ club) are all vast beaches with land yachting clubs available. The sport is open to all. You can start from the age of 7 or 8 on a class 5 yacht, and then slowly progress to faster yachts. The most well-known is class 3. It is the Formula 1 of yachts, with its streamlined silhouette and speed! A lot of the larger and more comfortable class 2 yachts are also used in the north of France and Belgium. A sense of freedom and excitement is guaranteed!
