Sailing

Have you ever wondered how pirates can survive in the sea for weeks after weeks, or how it would be to glide over the water with the help of only the natural elements? No modern technology, no harmful fuels, and absolutely organic? We don’t know about you, but we surely have and pretty much found the answer to all our wonderings! Sailing is a practice as old as time. From the rudimentary floating rafts with masts to huge ships that need full crews to manoeuvre through the winds across oceans, sailing has been a primary form of transportation and exploration since the dawn of civilization.

Yachting, sailing or sailboat racing consists of an ocean-borne craft that can be controlled or manoeuvred with the help of a fabric sail that arrests the wind in order to provide movement to the craft. Sailing requires extensive knowledge of the workings of a sailboat and skill to navigate the vessel through challenging and difficult oceanic conditions. Sailboat racing is done in two categories: class and handicap. In the former, all boats are roughly alike, with the first boat to the finish winning. In the latter, boats of differing type race against each other, with the scores decided according to each boat’s handicap (computed either before or after the race). The number of competitors in each boat varies from one (single-person dinghy racing) to crews of up to 20. Other types of sailing include kitesurfing and windsurfing.
