YACHTING

At the words yacht, yachting, sailing, a picture immediately appears in my head – the warm sea, the sun, snow-white sails, girls in swimsuits and tanned young people in shorts. So it is, if you take a boat on a charter in the summer and go on a cruise along the Mediterranean Sea. In fact, yachting is multifaceted and interesting not only for such trips.

Historians cannot give a definite answer to this, but they are inclined to believe that somewhere between the time he began to walk on two legs and the way he invented the wheel.

Windsurfing is a type of sailing. This entertainment consists in running on the water a small board with a sail. The projectile itself is called a “sailing board” or “windsurf”, it consists directly of a small board (2 – 4.7 meters) made of floating material and a flexible sail.

In fact, this is also a sailing vessel, but without a helm, instead, it is controlled by tilting the mast and sail, or by tilting the board itself directly from side to side. A similar method is used when planing. Speed ​​control depends on the installation of the sail relative to the wind, which is carried out using a boom (the crossbar for which the athlete holds).

Despite the dependence on the wind, water spaces can be plowed with any of its strength. It all depends on the practice and dexterity of the windsurfer. In addition, it is possible to perform some tricks (jumps, coups, etc.), but this is the lot of professionals. Continue reading
