Sand-Yachting at De Panne -- Just like at Oostduinkerke, the long wide beaches, firm sand, and frequent high winds at De Panne make for ideal conditions for sand-yachting. Rental companies on the beach outfit you in a wet suit and a crash helmet, give a few rudimentary tips on how to handle the vehicles, push you out into the wind -- and off you go. The yachts are unwieldy to handle at first, and heavier than they look, so maintaining stability can be difficult until you get the hang of it. But once you do, it's exhilarating.
