WHAT IS SAILING?

Sailing is the main form of yachting, and competitive sailing is the main form of yacht racing. There is a broad variety of kinds of races and sailboats used for racing from large yachts to dinghy racing. Racing is done around buoys or similar marks in protected waters, while some longer offshore races cross open water. The racing rules of sailing govern the conduct of yacht racing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, model boat racing, dinghy racing and virtually any other form of racing around a course with more than one vessel while powered by the wind.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF SAILING

Sailing requires good muscle strength and endurance and greatly improves cardiovascular fitness as well as having many mental health benefits. The various tasks associated with sailing also helps improve your flexibility and agility and concentration is key.

COMMON SAILING INJURIES

Many actions in sailing are sudden and sporadic, placing muscles at high risk by performing explosive, powerful moves, often when they are not warmed up. Physical actions around a sailboat are often awkward, resulting in rotating, hyperextending, locking, or twisting of joints. The level and type of sailing injury will depend on the type of boat used and the experience of the crew.
