 Wiki


  • Sailing comprises wind propulsion of a craft by means of sails or other airfoils and steering it over water, ice or land, depending on the type of craft


 Sailing facts


  • A sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails by adjusting their angle with respect to the moving sailing craft and sometimes by adjusting the sail area
  • The force transmitted from the sails is resisted by forces from the hull, keel, and rudder of a sailing craft, by forces from skate runners for an iceboat, and by forces from wheels for a land sailing craft to allow steering a course on a point of sail with respect to the true wind
  • While there are still some places in the world where sail-powered passenger, fishing and trading vessels are used, these craft have become rarer as internal combustion engines have become economically viable in even the poorest and most remote areas
  • In most countries sailing is enjoyed as a recreational activity or as a sport
  • Recreational sailing or yachting can be divided into racing and cruising
  • Cruising can include extended offshore and ocean-crossing trips, coastal sailing within sight of land, and daysailing
