The World Landsailing Organisation or Fédération Internationale de Sand et Landyachting (FISLY), is an international organisation which governs national associations of land sailing worldwide.

The federation was founded[2] in April 1962 by representatives from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Great Britain.

In October 2018, FISLY became an observer member of[3][4] the Global Association of International Sports Federations.[5]

As well as promotion and setting the rules of the sport, FISLY has also organised the World Championships since 1975[6] and the European Championships since 1963.
