Active in Doha out in the Desert
Blokarting also known as land yatching, was introduced to Qatar in the 1980s. Although it dwindled down a bit, blokarting is having a revival in the country, thanks to Qatar's perfect conditions for blokarting: lots of hard flat surface, good wind, vast desert grounds for land sailing and eager fans. The Qatar Rowing and Sailing Federation (QRSF) rents the equipment and offers lessons in beaches, grasslands and flat deserts. The best months to go blokarting are November to March. Wakrah is a favorite destination for blokarting enthusiasts.
