A Quick Guide to Different Types of Sailing

There are two main types of sailing. Competitive racing and cruising, which is leisurely. The latter demands experience and knowledge gained from racing. This short guide gives a brief introduction to both.



Cruising is a leisurely form of sailing. Boats become floating homes covering short or long distances. Those skippering boats must be knowledgeable in all areas of safety. Experience in handling boats in all weather and sea conditions is essential. Skippers master this over time by taking part in racing events and learning from the pros.


Looking for ways to fund your sailing costs? It is actually easier than you think. You can actually make money while sailing if you want. All it takes is a little knowledge of sports betting and a taste for risk-taking.
