From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search For either of the songs named "Sailing", see Sailing (song) Wooden sailing boat. Sailing is the art of controlling a sailing vessel . By adjusting the rigging rudder and dagger or centre board, a sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails (main and/or jib) in order to change the direction and speed of a boat. Mastery of the skill requires experience in varying wind and sea conditions , as well as knowledge concerning sailboats . Today most people enjoy sailing as a recreational activity. Recreational sailing can be further divided into racing cruising and "daysailing" or dinghy sailing . There are many production sailboats available, and several of these manufactured models have ownership associations, such as the Islander 36 association. Throughout history sailing has been instrumental in the development of civilization. The earliest representation of a ship under sail appears on an Egyptian vase from about 3500 BC. Advances in sailing technology from the 15th century onward enabled European explorers in Canada to make longer voyages into regions with extreme weather and climatic conditions. Improvements were made in the design of sails, masts and rigging, and navigational equipment became more sophisticated. Ships went further north, stayed longer on the

Oldies and Goodies
Top honors in the 800 mile Corona del Mar to Cabo San Lucas race are going to a 50-year-old "oldie" sailed by a bunch of "goodies." Sabrina , a 50-foot wooden "double-ender," has beaten a handful of high-tech "sleds" on corrected time in the annual San Diego to the tip of Baja race. Not that Sabrina 's actual time is anything to be ashamed of she covered the course in three days 22 hours 40 minutes 30 seconds. Fifty-year-old Sabrina was designed by the father of current owner, Chris Calkins. And unlike today's stripped-down speed demons, the woody has all the comforts of home. Describing the race, Calkins said: "We had cushions out, the cocktail table out. We watched the guys on the sleds running their heads off and having to go back and forth, and we just sort of pointed in one direction and went." Calkins' San Diego crew was 41 to 65 in age and most are well-known successful sailors in their own right. Calkins is 62. His navigator, Fred Delaney, is 65. Others were Doug Peterson, the noted designer, Norm Reynolds, who Calkins put in charge, Star sailor Mike Dorgan, Jim Sakesegawa and Bill White. And unlike the post-race antics of many of the sleds' "rockstar" sailors, after tying up in Cabo

... oard of Directors Meetings Sailors are the only waterway users in the country who voluntarily increased their PFD usage in the last 10 years Working With Government to Protect the Sport of Sailing What if all sailboats small or large were required to carry expensive transponders on board? What if all sailors, guests and crew were required to carry a special marine identification while on the water? Do these ideas sound outrageous or impossible to you? The government has seriously considered implementing these regulations and if it weren't for US SAILING's efforts to represent sailors' best interests by working with federal agencies to ensure the largest number of sailors can safely enjoy their time on the water, these regulations - and others - might be a reality today.
America's waters are used by numerous types of vessels, from cargo ships and military to fishermen, powerboat racers, jet skiers, sailors, and more. Our waterways are getting more and more crowded and therefore they are considered by government to be increasingly more dangerous (not only because so many boaters can prove to be hazard to each other, but also pose a threat to national security). There are a number of national boating organizations that work to get boaters' rights represented with the national government. However, US SAILING is the only boating organization representing sailing exclusively.

"For the truth is that I already know as much about my fate as I need to know. The day will come when I will die. So the only matter of consequence before me is what I will do with my allotted time. I can remain on shore, paralyzed with fear, or I can raise my sails and dip and soar in the breeze."
